Yeah, I suspect that'd be a pretty common preference.  (From the current
limitation, you probably guessed that I'm a lumper when it comes to
mailing list messages.)

Sounds good.

Make sense.

Hmm, with :maildir coming second, I think I'd interpret the priority to
be opposite of what it is.  Perhaps something closer to the phrasing you
used in the commit message:

  ... into a local Maildir directory specified by the current inbox's
  @code{:maildir} value in @code{piem-inboxes}, falling back to

Unlike the previous piem-maildir-directory, maildir-directory is local
to this function, so a user that sees this message can't learn more with
`C-h v' and friends.  How about

  "No directory returned by `piem-inbox-maildir-directory'"

Similar comment here.  Perhaps

   "Does not look like a Maildir directory: %s" maildir-directory)

Anyway, those are all minor comments.  Looking very nice.  Thanks.
