Simple keybindings for Gmail/IMAP use

;; Here are a few keybindings to help with moving Gmail messages from
;; INBOX (typically) to wherever. Strangely enough I've not seen these
;; published online even though the concept is extremely simple and
;; requires no (or little) knowledge or skill to implement (which is why I
;; could do it).
;; An annoyance with GNUS/Gmail is that if you read something in GNUS,
;; it still appears in the INBOX if you go to the Web interface. Mail
;; needs to be moved, not just read, to get it out of INBOX. Archiving
;; moves it to "All Mail" (even though it's already there, which is
;; kind of silly but that's how it works). Moving to Spam or Trash
;; work as expected, as does moving something /to/ INBOX.
;; Certainly, you can use 'Bm' and then select a folder to move to. But
;; I wanted something specific for Gmail that was a little faster.
;; To use these, just put the cursor on the mail you want to move (in
;; the group summary). Alternatively, process mark a selection of
;; mails (with '#') to have them all moved at once (to the same place,
;; of course).
;; Prefix v (reserved by gnus for user stuff?) then
;; a=archive (to 'all mail') s=spam t=trash i=inbox
