Can you (re)explain the architecture for me then please, as I'm
obviously missing something. I thought that mj2 simply stashed a copy
of each message in a standard mbox as it was sent, which we then use
mhonarc to convert to a bunch of web pages.

If you tell mj2 to delete a message, does it go back to the
appropriate mailbox file and delete it? That would change the
numbering that mhonarc uses, requiring a full rebuild of the archives
and breaking any external links in the process.

I also see a 'hidden' option. Does that work in conjunction with
mhonarc to hide a message based on a header or something? If not,
surely it must just remove it from the mailbox as well?
