These operations should be represented to the user in form of activity manager events with a possibility of undo.

Take 1

Mostly done. Undo issue needs to be solved. Waiting for activity manager to be completed before submitting the final cut.

Work in progress.

A quick look and this seems reasonable, I've pushed it already:

I think this means we can close this bug.  New bugs w/ the feature should be placed in new bugs.

Testing note: this won't be testable until 476700 is resolved.

Once that is done, however, users should be able to: move, delete, copy messages and folders, as well as rename folders, and see those actions reflected in the activity manager window.  Particular code paths that would be good to have in the tests include: 

 - 1 vs. many messages; 
 - move and copy;
 - moves and copies across accounts; renames including weird characters.

I'm hoping that i'm setting the right litmus flag.

One thing that doesn't seem quite right is that message deletes are listed as "Moved from ... to <mail.server...trash_folder_name>"
(IMAP server, option "when i delete a message:" set to "move it to this folder: ...").
9514,9515,9516,9517 have beend added to FFT.
