This work was going on in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=558659.  Most of the hard work is done, like figuring out that the server supports SPECIAL USE, and 
the parsing of the special folder flags already works as part of the XLIST work I did a while ago. So all that's left is the code to send the command.

Or, if the server just were to send the special folder flags defined by that RFC, w/o Thunderbird asking for them, as is allowed by the RFC, then Thunderbird would respect 
the flags.
