If you have a tree of mboxes and a Maildir tree, you have two accounts for
them, because Evo regards them as account-related sources. That's just the
model it uses, because you have to decide on one (or put the work onto users
as mutt does, which is perfectly fine in mutt's case).

Nothing wrong with using the right tool for the job. :-)
