This is something that does need work I agree.  I was thinking that the
best way is probably for each test to also carry an mbox file with it, that
gets inc'd.  The current framework is meant to be a start, sadly it's just
not gone anywhere in a long time.

Yes, this is an issue, I agree.  I'm not sure how to best solve this
problem.  I'm open to ideas here.

Thanks for taking a look.
