All full text search backends are now implemented so that if you
copy/move mails, the mails need to be indexed again the destination folder.

Alternative would be to index mails only with their GUIDs and have a
GUID => { folder GUID, IMAP UID } mapping and filter the mails based on
that. But such reverse index doesn't exist quite yet.
