Well, yes, buuuttt ... we never sat down and said what a hook can and
can't do.  Like, can the "add" hook move a message to another folder? ...

Well, I seem to recall that there was documentation :-)  My recollection is
that there are 3 hooks, add, delete, and refile.  And as I said earlier, they
could certainly be made more robust.  Maybe it's time to start a discussion.

ok by me.

 From my perspective, what I need is to know what messages exist by folder and
message number.  My use case was to have an external database associated with
the mh database.  What do other people want?

mine was the same as you describe. it was faster than MH-on-ZFS, but not faster than MH-on-UFS-on-zpool, so i abandoned it.
