I have been working on this for a while, but haven't yet got anything
into a suitable state for submission (and haven't made progress on it
for a while).  My WIP is at:


The idea is to introduce a new helper protocol so that you can implement
various ways of finding a message given a message-id; I've implemented
one that finds the message from gmane.

What's there works in format-patch but not with send-email, which
implements message IDs itself rather than forwarding the arguments to
format-patch and I haven't had time to investigate changing send-email
to work with these patches.
