But no one has answered my question about how do I move a directory's 
contents en-mass to another directory by way of a dbus command. I need 
to move the contents of the spam directory by first deleting the 
contents of the spam-hold directory, and the move the contents of the 
spam directory into the spam-hold directory, a thing that is repeated 
each 24 hours by the script that drives sa-learn spam, and sa-learn ham 
over selected directory's.

I had to pull teeth w/o novocain just to find out how to send kmail a go 
get mail command from my mailwatcher script, which uses inotifywait to 
see the closing of a mailfile in /var/spool/mail as its indicator that a 
new mail has arrived from a separate fetchmail->procmail process.

If those rm's and mv's from outside of kmails knowledge, were converted 
to dbus commands to be executed by kmail, then nothing would disturb its 
database but kmails own actions.

So, where do I find the real docs on how kmail responds to commands sent 
over dbus? That seems to be a secret, and it sucks dead toads thru soda 
straws. I just now rechecked the Handbook, and it has zero mention of 
dbus.  So please explain how, and I WILL fix my scripts.
