The discussion on this proposal seems to have died out without reaching
a conclusion. David M expressed a strong preference for some kind of
modification time field in the database.  Gaute agreed with some caveats
that such an approach could solve his problems as well. On the other
hand, nobody seems to be actually working on such an approach at the
moment.  Gaute and or David do you have any interest in revisiting the
series id:1323796305-28789-1-git-send-email-schno...@schnouki.net and
seeing if it can be reworked into mergeable shape? I suspect in
particular something needs to be added with respect to message deletion
Thomas, are you still running some variant of these patches?
