why couldn't an indexer know the difference between the message file
and the content cache?

anyway:  i think i still prefer the idea that the content cache
directories be kept in the message tree.  but i also understand why
one might want them separate.  if the idea is that the message tree
and the cache tree are roughly isomorphic, i'll bet that could be made
a per-user choice, as long as the content directories were really
named "53.mime/" and not simply "53/" -- i.e., the messages and the
mime-dirs could either live in the same tree or not, since they use
different parts of the namespace.  (but clients certainly would need
to be careful not to assume one model or the other.)
