First let me say how grateful I am to the Alpine developers for their hard
work and excellent product. Alpine is the fastest way I know of to cope
with all the email I receive. It's a great tool.
I have two suggestions for Alpine enhancements that would make roles work
a lot better for me (and almost certainly for other people), and I don't
think they would be hard for programmers to implement (but I'm not sure on
(1) In "Current Folder Conditions" allow specific folder patterns to use
globbing, at least "*". I tried to make it work, but couldn't do it, so I
assume this is not currently implemented.
(2) Allow users to type the first character or two of a role name to
specify their role selection instead of making them scroll through the
list of role names.
I think both of those features have obvious appeal, so maybe they are
hidden in there somewhere or I haven't enabled them, but otherwise I think
they would be welcom additions.
