[Alpine-info] Quick INBOX(CLOSED) workaround?

Can anyone more familiar with the code see a way to quickly add the
"re-open the closed connection" functionality to the newmail check? or to
whatever gets run when ^L is pressed?
I've started using Alpine with Gmail (for domains), but only for composing
mail. So, I leave Alpine up in the background, and the connection closes
on some error or another. (Usually due to a wireless network dropping
out.) Then I'm left in the INBOX(CLOSED) state, and have to jump up to
"incoming folders" (or some other list of folders) and go back into the
original folder. Gmail's IMAP LIST apparently isn't the quickest thing in
the world, so it'd be nice to avoid having to go back up in the hierarchy.
(Not that it's that slow... and I've probably just spent ten times as much
time composing this as I'll save... but still.)
