nmh already has nmh-cache, how about putting parts there?
They could go into a hierarchy that shadows the MH
hierarchy, but with one root directory, e.g., 53.mime (or
just 53) corresponding to each message.  That way scripts
that troll the two hierarchies would look similar.  And
a script that trolls the MH hierarchy would know where
to look for the parts.

The cache be populated on demand.  And cleaned up manually.
Temporal locality of reference suggests not cleaning after
each use, but rather periodically.
