This patch adds an option to Mail were it interprets argument passed to it
as path of a new mailbox to open and display.
The path may be a relative path on the filesystem or an absolute one
which would be directly opened using upasfs(4).
On exit the mailbox is closed again.
Also NAIL -> ACMEMAIL and fix usage string.

Notes:
- Behaviour is reintroduced/amended from old Mail (before Nail).
- Thanks to Ori and Alex Musolino for providing feedback regarding this change.
- I directly quoted "." in man page instead of saying working directory,
   to make it obvious that we are talking about path on file system; maybe ugly.
- Hope this looks good now and is useful to some, else please let me know.

P.S.: For anyone who has followed earlier thread: I am sorry for all the noise.
@Ori: I haven't had time to reply you properly after I have realized
that some of my notes regarding your feedback were wrong
that's why I send previous patch.
As this one addresses all of your feedback + some further cosmetic changes
I hope this may be merged directly, if not please let me know.

Looks much better than the previous iteration. Sorry it's
taking me some time to get to, I'm testing it now and will
have some feedback or a commit soon.
