I prefer the ability to index a Unix-style mailbox as an archive...
then I can edit as I please, cut/paste/etc, and run the re-indexer to
fix up the offsets. All that is required is the same thing Eudora does:
when storing a msg in a file full of msgs, make sure the ONLY line that
matches /^From / is the first line of an email header. If you find it
elsewhere, s/^From />From / and now building the index is as simple as
searching for /^From / and marking the offset.
