Create Mailboxes on Delivery

When I tried this patch a month or so ago, it would create INBOXs, but 
not other mailboxes. For instance, I tried posting a message to a 
nonexistent mailbox,; it ended up in INBOX. Possibly 
I misused the patch, and possibly it now does what it didn't before. I 
would be glad to hear about it!

I think the other patch from the University of Athens, the Auto Sieve 
Folder patch, is intended to create arbitrary mailboxes - but from the 
context of sieve. I'm not using sieve; I need to create arbitrary 
mailboxes from the context of an authenticated delivery.

Please let me know if I'm mistaken, and really should be using the UoA
