okay. But, I want it to operate across "all" folders.
I realize that the definition of "all" is pretty loose.
So I'll say everything in ~/Mail

I'd like it to look through a database in the local folder if it's not
in ~/Mail, and otherwise look in ~/Mail.

I am open to logic like, look up the file system for ../.MAGIC until you find
it so that one can do stuff like:
   mv ~/Mail /otherdisk/oldstuff/y2009

but then you also think you might like it to look through a $PATH of files

There are two things that matter:
1) updating the reference in the right place when moving/filing messages. 
2) where pick --message-id will look.
