I agree; it's a lot of moving parts.
I was also thinking that it would let me suck in calendar events; but since I
really want to suck them into google calendar, unless the google calendar
support in thunderbird/lightning has massively improved, or GMAIL now
supports important by IMAP (it doesn't), then it probably doesn't matter.
(I know someone is working on better calendar support too)

I guess at this point, with "K e" in mh-e, I just need to come up with a
better shell script that puts the file into the right place, and sees if it
can use $DISPLAY to talk to my running browser, rather than dbus.
