Summary: wildcard support for mboxtrain

Initial Comment:
i have about 40 folders that i use to keep track of
numerous e-mail lists, projects, scraps of digital
dimentia, etc.  

it would be very helpful if mboxtrain would accept
wildcards for mail folder identification.  yes, i could
have 40 command line params, but that adds a YAM (Yet
Another Maintenance) task to make sure that the folders
match the command line parameters. 

what would really be useful is if mboxtrain would keep
track of folders that it has read in that session
already. that way one could use the following syntax:

mboxtrain -d [db] -s [dir]/spam -g [dir]/*

and not have the ham process read the spam folder
(since it is likely that there will be only 1 spam
folder and multiple ham folders). i suppose you could
just hard code the ham flag parser to ignore folders
named 'spam' but that would kinda be horky...

anway, i think would help in the move towards more 'set
& forget' operation.
