Hi Randy,

These are good points. I just don窶冲 understand why tutorial authors
seem to encourage new users to fiddle with their ~/.folders file.

Everybody- I have made a few enhancements for my WL auto-config
system. Unfortunately it is based on the Mozilla auto-config settings
which are rather incomplete. However it basically works for gmail and
probably some other systems. The bootstrap method is similar to the
el-get method. Paste the following in your scratch buffer, and give it
a shot. It will prompt before it changes your customize settings or
folders.

;; Paste into *scratch* buffer, type C-x C-e, and answer questions.
(url-retrieve
"https://raw.github.com/gist/1207807/wl-auto-config.el"
(lambda (s)
(goto-char (point-max))
(eval-print-last-sexp)))

I don窶冲 know what to do with this, except perhaps link to it on
emacswiki.

best, Erik
