   * to register the subfolders. This method is expected to be synchronous.
   * This shouldn't be confused with server folder discovery, which is allowed
   * to be asynchronous.

   * Get an output stream for a message in a folder.
   * @param aFolder folder to create a message output stream for.
   * @param aNewHdr If aNewHdr is set on input, then this is probably for
   *                offline storage of an existing message. If null, the
   *                this is a newly downloaded message and the store needs
   *                to create a new header for the new message. If the db
   *                is invalid, this can be null. But if the db is valid,
   *                the store should create a message header with the right
   *                message key, or whatever other property it needs to set to
   *                be able to retrieve the message contents later. If the store
   *                needs to base any of this on the contents of the message,
   *                it will need remember the message header and hook into
   *                the output stream somehow to alter the message header.
   * @param aReusable set to true on output if the caller can reuse the
   *                  stream for multiple messages, e.g., mbox format.
   *                  This means the caller will likely get the same stream
   *                  back on multiple calls to this method, and shouldn't
   *                  close the stream in between calls if they want reuse.
   * @return The output stream to write to. The output stream will be positioned
   *         for writing (e.g., for berkeley mailbox, it will be at the end).

                                        out boolean aReusable);

   * Called when the current message is discarded, e.g., it is moved
   * to an other folder as a filter action, or is deleted because it's
   * a duplicate. This gives the berkeley mailbox store a chance to simply
   * truncate the Inbox w/o leaving a deleted message in the store.
   * @param aOutputStream stream we were writing the message to be discarded to
   * @param aNewHdr header of message to discard
  void discardNewMessage(in nsIOutputStream aOutputStream,
                         in nsIMsgDBHdr aNewHdr);

   * Must be called by code that calls getNewMsgOutputStream to finish
   * the process of storing a new message, if the new msg has not been
   * discarded. Could/should this be combined with discardNewMessage?
   * @param aOutputStream stream we were writing the message to.
   * @param aNewHdr header of message finished.
  void finishNewMessage(in nsIOutputStream aOutputStream,

   * Called by pop3 message filters when a newly downloaded message is being
   * moved by an incoming filter. This is called before finishNewMessage, and
   * it allows the store to optimize that case.
   * @param aNewHdr msg hdr of message being moved.
   * @param aDestFolder folder to move message to, in the same store.
   * @return true if successful, false if the store doesn't want to optimize
   *         this.

   * Get an input stream that we can read the contents of a message from.
   * If the input stream is reusable, and the caller is going to ask
   * for input streams for other messages in the folder, then the caller
   * should not close the stream until it is done with its messages.
   * @param aMsgFolder Folder containing the message
   * @param aMsgToken token that identifies message. This is store-dependent,
   *                  and must be set as a string property "storeToken" on the
   *                  message hdr by the store when the message is added
   *                  to the store.
   * @param aOffset offset in the returned stream of the message.
   * @param[optional] aHdr msgHdr to use in case storeToken is not set. This is
   *                  for upgrade from existing profiles.
   * @param[optional] aReusable Is the returned stream re-usable for other
   *                            messages' input streams?

   * Delete the passed in messages. These message should all be in the
   * same folder.
   * @param aHdrArray array of nsIMsgDBHdr's.
  void deleteMessages(in nsIArray aHdrArray);

   * This allows the store to handle a msg move/copy if it wants. This lets
   * it optimize move/copies within the same store. E.g., for maildir, a
   * msg move mostly entails moving the file containing the message, and
   * updating the db. If the store does not want to implement this, the core
   * code will use getMsgInputStream on the source message,
   * getNewMsgOutputStream for the dest message, and stream the input to
   * the output. This operation can be asynchronous.
   * If the store does the copy, it must return the appropriate undo action,
   * which can be store dependent. And it must send the appropriate
   * nsIMsgFolderNotificationService notifications.
   * @param isMove true if this is a move, false if it is a copy.
   * @param aHdrArray array of nsIMsgDBHdr's, all in the same folder
   * @param aDstFolder folder to move/copy the messages to.
   * @param aListener listener to notify of copy status.
   * @param aDstHdrs array of nsIMsgDBHdr's in the destination folder.
   * @param[out,optional] aUndoAction transaction to provide undo, if
   * the store does the copy itself.
   * @return true if messages were copied, false if the core code should
   *         do the copy.
  boolean copyMessages(in boolean isMove,
                       in nsIArray aHdrArray,
                       in nsIMsgFolder aDstFolder,
                       in nsIMsgCopyServiceListener aListener,

   * Does this store require compaction? For example, maildir doesn't require
   * compaction at all. Berkeley mailbox does. A sqlite store probably doesn't.
   * This is a static property of the store. It doesn't mean that any particular
   * folder has space that can be reclaimed via compaction. Right now, the core
   * code keeps track of the size of messages deleted, which it can use in
   * conjunction with this store attribute.
  readonly attribute boolean supportsCompaction;

   * Remove deleted messages from the store, reclaiming space. Some stores
   * won't need to do anything here (e.g., maildir), and those stores
   * should return false for needsCompaction. This operation is asynchronous,
   * and the passed url listener should be called when the operation is done.
   * @param aFolder folder whose storage is to be compacted
   * @param aListener listener notified when compaction is done.
   * @param aMsgWindow window to display progress/status in.
  void compactFolder(in nsIMsgFolder aFolder, in nsIUrlListener aListener,
                     in nsIMsgWindow aMsgWindow);

   * Is the summary file for the passed folder valid? For Berkeley Mailboxes,
   * for local mail folders, this checks the timestamp and size of the local
   * mail folder against values stored in the db. For other stores, this may
   * be a noop, though other stores could certainly become invalid. For
   * Berkeley Mailboxes, this is to deal with the case of other apps altering
   * mailboxes from outside mailnews code, and this is certainly possible
   * with other stores.
   * @param aFolder Folder to check if summary is valid for.
   * @param aDB DB to check validity of.
   * @return return true if the summary file is valid, false otherwise.
  boolean isSummaryFileValid(in nsIMsgFolder aFolder, in nsIMsgDatabase aDB);

   * Marks the summary file for aFolder as valid or invalid. This method
   * may not be required, since it's really used by Berkeley Mailbox code
   * to fix the timestamp and size for a folder.
   * @param aFolder folder whose summary file should be marked (in)valid.
   * @param aDB db to mark valid (may not be the folder's db in odd cases
   *            like folder compaction.
   * @param aValid whether to mark it valid or invalid.
  void setSummaryFileValid(in nsIMsgFolder aFolder, in nsIMsgDatabase aDB,
                           in boolean aValid);

   * Rebuild the index from information in the store. This involves creating
   * a new nsIMsgDatabase for the folder, adding the information for all the
   * messages in the store, and then copying the new msg database over the
   * existing database. For Berkeley mailbox, we try to maintain meta data
   * stored in the existing database when possible, and other stores should do
   * the same. Ideally, I would figure out a way of making that easy. That
   * might entail reworking the rebuild index process into one where the store
   * would iterate over the messages, and stream each message through the
   * message parser, and the common code would handle maintaining the
   * meta data. But the berkeley mailbox code needs to do some parsing because
   * it doesn't know how big the message is (i.e., the stream can't simply be
   * a file stream).
   * This operation is asynchronous,
   * and the passed url listener should be called when the operation is done.
   * @param aFolder folder whose storage is to be compacted
   * @param aMsgDB db to put parsed headers in.
   * @param aMsgWindow msgWindow to use for progress updates.
   * @param aListener listener notified when the index is rebuilt.
  void rebuildIndex(in nsIMsgFolder aFolder, in nsIMsgDatabase aMsgDB,
                    in nsIMsgWindow aMsgWindow, in nsIUrlListener aListener);

   * Sets/Clears the passed flags on the passed messages.
   * @param aHdrArray array of nsIMsgDBHdr's
   * @param aFlags flags to set/clear
   * @param aSet true to set the flag(s), false to clear.
  void changeFlags(in nsIArray aHdrArray, in unsigned long aFlags,

   *Sets/Clears the passed keywords on the passed messages.

   * @param aAdd true to add the keyword(s), false to remove.
