Hi Jon,

Ah!  Yes.

While NeoMutt is waiting for a keypress, there's lots of code that's
wanting attention: `$mail_check`, `$mail_check_stats_interval`,
`$imap_keep_alive`, `$pop_check_interval`.

The *granularity* of these checks, however, was `$timeout`.
If you set `$timeout` to 10 minutes, then nothing else would get checked
for that time.

I refactored the central loop to be 1 second and moved the other checks

Not yet.

One of the reasons for breaking up the loop was so that I could refactor
the key handling.  That'll be in the next release (which shouldn't be
another 4 months :-)

This would include a configurable timeout for multi-keys.

> macro index <F1>i  "<change-folder> =INBOX<enter>"  "go to inbox"

A common shortcut is 'gi' (and a host of other g + letter)
That'd be a little easier to type at speed :-)

Or following Vim: ',' (comma) + letter.
