<cough>database?</cough>

It's a file system. It simply generates HTML (or in our case) PHP files from each message in an mbox. That's one of the reasons for the monthly break - without it, the directories would be unusably full of files.

I the current URLs represent the month, and the ID of the message as it comes out of the mbox I believe. We could probably write a script to dump a list of message IDs, directories and mbox positions I imagine, and then import that into a new database.

It's been on my list to rewrite the whole archive system for a while for various reasons. There is quite a bit of crossover with the patch tracker I proposed so I was hoping to look at both together.
