Oh I didn't notice that!  Well that means I might be able to do it this
way, and if that doesn't work I can use the Python script Holger

I have to confess the idea of marking messages before filtering is
growing on me, mainly because it's one extra layer of safety.  At the
moment I am somewhat terrified of accidentally pressing "filter all
messages in folder" and watching my to-do list get ruined :-)  Having
to mark messages first would mean an accidental run like this wouldn't
cause any problems.

So thanks everyone for all the suggestions and help.  It looks like
there are a couple of ways to solve this problem!
