That wouldn't allow me to tell the difference between messages I'd read and 
delivered messages.

I'd like to be able to distinguish between seen and unseen messages without
requiring the MDA to update the .mh_sequence file.  If the sequence was a list
of messages that were read rather than unread then only the interactive
mh commands would need to muck with it thereby avoiding a need for the MDA
to lock the .mh_sequence file.
