I've often thought that in hopefully-not-too-distant future when we had
IMAP support, something like this would happen:

% echo `mhpath 5 8 12`
/tmp/.imapcache/88932 /tmp/.imapcache/92861 /tmp/.imapcache/1034785

Or whatever ... you get the idea.  mhpath would fetch the messages
in question and put them somewhere local and return those pathnames.
Sure, you could give a flag to mhpath to make it return IMAP URLs,
but if we did that then I think we should return URLs for all
