Upas' "store" is a single flat mbox file.  The magic is that upasfs is a file 
server that interprets the contents of the mbox file on the fly and presents 
the file's contents in an alternative form.  You could never store messages in 
the format upasfs exports.

That said, I have modified upasfs to use an MH-style back-end message store 
with an accompanying per-folder meta-data cache.  This work was done to solve 
upasfs' scaling problems (it stores everything in memory), and to speed up 
meta-data operations when the host running upasfs imports /mail from a far-away 
file server.
