The author of Wmh posted here a while back ... we went around on some
performance problems he was encountering (I wish we could have helped
him more; fixing those issues would require some significant changes).
Part of the issue was some huge folders took a while to read with

FWIW, I store my nmh folders in AFS, and that mostly works well for
mobility, but doesn't really solve the problem in the general case.
I suspect the only true long-term solution is IMAP, but that is a LOT
of work (but if Heirloom mailx and mailutils can do it, I don't see
any fundamental reason we cannot).
