Hey, it was an untested proof-of-concept I wrote in a minute!  It hadn't
even gone through QC yet! :-)

Right, I see where you're coming from.  Right now the division of labor
we have is that 'send' turns a "message draft" into something ready to
go out over the wire (mostly by running mhbuild). 'post' does the dirty
work.  It would only take adding a little bit of smarts to 'send' to
put those messages somewhere else (like in 'outqueue') and then you
could simply have send feed the list of queued messages to 'post' when
you reconnected.  But I don't know if it's worth it for me to do in the
short term.
