They are the exact same thing.

1.0-stable doesn't support keywords at all. 1.0-tests support them, but 
with maildir they're currently only stored in index files, so if they 
get lost the keywords get lost. Also there's no easy way to keep old 

This is one of the last important things left to do before v1.0.. 
Hopefully soon :)
