I generally don't care for "Confirm" dialogs... but...  

Due to a flaky mouse, while scrolling the folder list, my system got a 'move
folder' event.  The folder that got accidentally grabbed/moved has 273
sub-folders and nearly 28000 messages.

Searched for hidden confirm/move options; but none found.

This "move" brought to light that, accidental or deliberate, large moves take
quite a while and there's no way to stop/abort the process.  Even [fg+]Ctrl-Z
is ignored until the move completes.

Could a confirm dialog be added?  Stopping a move is another option, though it
probably would only be possible between folders...  and only if cache and
filter updates happen in sync with the moves.
