Getting read/unread status of each doc from a Domino server

I am developing an e-mail client using Java (Domino Objects and DCO). How do I get the read/unread status of each of the documents I fetch from the Domino server using a remote connection? This, as you know, is a basic necessity of any e-mail client.
The Notes C API (and the C++ API) contain functions to identify the unread status of a document. You can also get the unread status of every document in a view using the ?GetViewEntries URL command, which is documented in the Domino Designer help.

I don't know of any way to retrieve the unread status of a document through the Java/CORBA interface (on which DCO is based).
