I was using symlinks.  I try to avoid hardlinks that cross directories
--- not sure why, probably because I can't easily manage them to find
out what something is linked to without playing with inodes.  You are
right that if I used hard-links I put things in a separate directory,
and the hard links would still contain the email, though if the email
has been removed, should we still be returning it from a query?  I
suppose I could delete items with only one link.

Well, if I move the permanent links to another directory, as you
suggest, I am going to invalidate every link.  Maybe we should wait for
this commit fest to end and then I can create a permanent link directory
and use hard links.

Or is everyone OK with invalidating all the permanent links now.

Are you talking about the permalink in the js-kit comment or the
permalink at the top of each message?  What text do you want to be the
permalink?  How is that created in an automated manner?
