No, because Ingo doesn't know where the list is coming from, whether  
it's cached or not, or whether it's refreshable.
You have such a button in IMP, that *does* know about these things.

This would require namespace information to be available to Ingo,  
which isn't the case. And frankly, it would be far to many details for  
a simple folder list API.
