Even with GMail not respecting RFCs and deleting
mails from the UIDL list without the client issuing a DELE, to go back
to your original question, quote:

They just wouldn't be downloaded again, but the fetched copy in the
temp dir -- which is *not* a system temp-dir, but a C-M one -- would
be used and filtered to the correct mailbox.

I'm starting to find your tone rather irritating, "that's inefficient",
"that doesn't work",... and I suggest you start stepping off your high
Claws-Mail exists and works since more than ten years, has at least a
few thousand users, and I believe that if it didn't work, we'd be aware
of it by now.
