RFC says:

It is permitted to delete a name that has inferior hierarchical
names and does not have the \Noselect mailbox name attribute. In
this case, all messages in that mailbox are removed, and the name
will acquire the \Noselect mailbox name attribute.

But is it really wanted that the mailbox still exists and has
\Noselect? I'm guessing this should mean that when doing LIST "" %, it
shows up as \Noselect since it has children, but LIST "" * shouldn't
need to show the mailbox at all since it shows its children anyway?
