Summary: Disable "Get Flagged Messages" when no messages flagged → Disable "Get Flagged (starred) Messages" when no messages flagged
hmm, not clear how realistic this is. would we really enumerate an account's starred messages for an any reason
Get Flagged is an instance where "flag" != "star" -- the flagging doesn't mean, "this item is special" but "this item is one of the set I wish to get." Ideally, in this case, the flag would disappear after the Get -- more of an extended selection. And so, it wouldn't be persistent; and so, it wouldn't require enumeration; enumeration would be automatic by the action of flagging. This feature is a holdover from newsreader days, especially reassembling binaries (which is a still-unimplemented feature). I wonder how common headers-only POP mail usage is. I wonder if there'd be many complaints if Get Flagged just disappeared.
