So just to put this into perspective and give anyone paying attention
an idea of the pain that lies ahead should they decide to work on
this:

- We need to import the old archives (of which there are hundreds of
thousands of messages, the first few years of which have, umm, minimal
headers.
- We need to generate thread indexes
- We need to re-generate the original URLs for backwards compatibility

Now there's encouragement :-)
