I have just tested the new toolbar and it is awesome! It might be nice to have
some configuration options that we could get at easily

Prototype with 3 new buttons
The following 3 buttons would be helpful:
# Show Filter List
# Run filters on current folder
# Run filters on selected message

This is a working version with the new functionality (run filters on selected
messages is completely new).
I added a sliding notification which is invoked after the call to run the
filters. I am not sure at this stage whether the filters are still running at
this stage as I do not know whether this is an asynchronous call (chances are
it is as you can keep working while the filter action is running; you can check
tools > activity manager to find out if you have a particularly crowded inbox.
If this is the case I might yet change the notification to something like
"filtering in progress..."
I felt it necessary to add a notification as the user doesn't really know
otherwise whether Tb actually does anything.
Still to do: configuration option(s) to disable these buttons

This version adds a an "advanced" tab to the quickFilters options where the
icons visibility can be toggled individually. Note that this only affects the 3
new buttons (on the QuickFolders toolbar) the actual quickFilters assistant
button is currently still only configurable via the main QuickFolders options
dialog. Maybe I will add configurability for this one (from the quickFilters
options dialog) later.
By default, the Filter list and run filters on folder buttons are shown and the
run filter on selected messages is hidden.
I also redesigned the larger (24px) main toolbar button to be less confusing on
the possible actions.
