I'd like some feedback from Procmail users.

At the moment, if you disable the stop flag, message are being copied  
due to the "c" flag. The idea probably was to apply several rules in a  
row, but this not what happens with "c".

Actuall I can't think of any of the filter actions supported by  
Procmail that would make sense of being combined though. This is  
different from other filter backends where you can mark messages with  
a flag *and* deliver them into some folder for example.
I'm considering to remove that flag completely for Procmail and keep  
the default behavior for all recipes, i.e. stopping the execution as  
soon as a message is delivered/stored anywhere. But I would appreciate  
some input from people who actually use Procmail first, I don't.
