Just a further question on this.

If a folder has sharedseen=true set in the metadata from its creation and
forever, I would expect shared seen flags.  If a folder always has
sharedseen=false for its entire life, I expect per-user \Seen flags.

What happens if the sharedseen attribute is changed during the lifetime of
a folder, when users may already have their own (or shared) \Seen flags?
