Just for completeness, "spam" subfolder could even automatically created
upon request by sieve sublayer, if doesn't exist. No need to include it in
autocreate inbox. This type of enhancement is provided by autosievefilter

Also I suppose that a lot of people would like an extended autocreate
Inbox patch with an "autocreatesievescript" option.
