It's actually supported by mutt, dovecot[1], and likely some other
software to augment the Status: header.  While dovecot doesn't
expose X-Status to clients, mutt will write 'A' (answered) and
'F' to X-Status (but not T (draft)).

So we'll drop it like we do Status since it's not suitable for
public mail, but stick it in an @UNWANTED_HEADERS array will

3 years agoreplace ParentPipe with EOFpipe

replace ParentPipe with EOFpipe

ParentPipe was a subset of EOFpipe, except EOFpipe correctly
accounts for theoretical(*) spurious wakeups on the pipe.

(*) AFAIK, spurious wakeups are/were more likely on TCP sockets
    due to checksum failures, something that's not a problem on
    local pipes.  We're also not sharing pipes like we do with
    listen sockets on accept(2), so there's no chance of another
    process grabbing bytes (unless we have bugs in our code).

3 years agods: avoid unnecessary timer for waitpid

It doesn't seem necessary, since we won't call dwaitpid()
until we see an EOF.

watch: use EOFpipe to reduce dwaitpid wakeups

It's a bit inefficient to use a pipe, here.  However, using
dwaitpid() on a process that's not expected to exit soon is
also inefficient as it causes excessive wakeups as most of
our inbox-writing code expects synchronous waitpid().

This only affects -watch instances configured for NNTP and IMAP

ds: avoid excessive queueing when reaping PIDs

We should not enqueue reap_pids() to run more than once per
EventLoop iteration.  We'll start reformatting reap_pids
to tabs, too, since we're no longer Danga::Socket.

We should also be able to remove timer usage for reaping
down-the-line once we stop abusing dwaitpid() in -watch.

In case there's non-Linux or BSD users w/o IO::KQueue, we
shouldn't let signal handlers fire in the child processes.

The child processes always assumed signals were blocked by
the parent, so no changes were necessary, there.

watch: avoid unnecessary spawning on spam removals

This should further mitigate lock contention problems
when -watch is configured to watch on a Maildir for spam
while performing a large NNTP import.

There is now a small risk a message won't get removed because if
it's in the current (uncommitted) fast-import batch, but
unlikely given the batch size is now only 10 messages.

If a that small window is hit, flipping the \Seen flag
(e.g. marking it unread, and then read again) will trigger
another removal attempt via IMAP or Maildir.

Sometimes it may not be apparent when/if a signal is
