When adding a maillist, kmail kindly assists with setting up a filter.

When eventually you unsubscribe, and then delete the folder, the filter remains.  After a while you have many stale filters - filters whose only effect is to deliver to a now non-existent folder.

1) When deleting the folder, offer to delete any filter entry that delivers to that folder
2) Add a tool to clean up filters.
