[FoRK] Nostalgy - keystroke filing in Thunderbird

I was thinking of creating something like this because I really needed it, but of course it already exists:
Nostalgy makes it easy to save or copy messages to a folder or go to a particular folder. This greatly reduces effort between
making a decision and making it happen: It is just an obvious keystroke. So, from the list of standard folders that I use below, I
can assign alt-d to "save message to sdw at lig.net:dev". "Save" here means to move the message from the current folder to that
folder. Unfortunately, it is Thunderbird wide, so it needs different keystrokes for the same idea in different accounts.
I don't see a way to do this with gmail:
I like to clear my inbox daily. Of the sometimes hundreds of messages I get every day, some I can use 'a' for quickly archiving
messages. I pretty much use that for spam. For the rest, I use these folders for most things. I still have quite a few procmailrc
rules, but many messages aren't handled, often because I want to be aware of them first.
nleads (hiring / job releated)
press (catch all, non-spam misc.)
relocation (should be home, anything related to living/moving)
And a few specifics:
Does anyone have a better or significantly different folder organization?
