Do either of you use Emacs? I'll plug MH-E here.

MH-E handles it. And namazu, swish-e and swish++ (which I use). MH-E
creates a folder for the matches--no matter the indexer--separated by
the source folder. Oh yeah, it falls back on pick and grep if necessary.

MH-E's scan listing dynamically changes the scan format depending on the
width of the largest message number so you don't have those pesky
question marks.
