I've already given my thoughts on this, but ... really, if someone wants
to do this, have at it!

But ...

Done!  inc has been able to grok Maildir format for ... over 6 years now.

Weeelll ... I know you complained about Mark making messages numbers not
being able to have holes in them; I view UIDs as the compromise there.
But Bernstein ignored MH because he was not trying to invent a MAILBOX
format, he was trying to invent a mailDROP ... really, I went back and
looked.  Yes, I know people now use Maildir as a mailbox, and I think
that's weird, but it wasn't his intention.
