You are correct.  I just `guilt import -P blah /tmp/mdir/cur/X` and then
hand-edit the patch to remove headers.  Last night I was thinking about
making a `guilt import-mbox` that'd import a mbox or maildir.  I don't know
off the top of my head how much `git am` would help in this instance.

Feel free to make the import-mbox or whatever command :)
