I'm not crazy about the names of the capability or the optional

It is usually called a detailed or detail address.

I know, I used ":detail" as one of the optional args.  But what do you
call the capability, "detail", "detailed", "detailed-address"?  None of
these seemed to work very well.

I think that "detailed-address" is as good as "subaddress" but perhaps
you should focus on the fact that you are writing to a folder and name
the capability "folder-addressing" and then rename the address selector
to ":folder". I think that the capability and the selector should be

I agree that "detailed-address" is a better description, but don't you
think its a little long for a require line?  I was hoping to come up
with a meaningful, yet succinct capability identifier.

As far as ":folder", I didn't want to make any assumptions as to the
nature of the detailed address.  I would agree that in most cases the
"detail" probably is a folder, but I don't think it has to be (no other
uses come to mind right now, though).
