Nurse!  My pills!

Seriously, I was thinking of writing something to verify the minutia
separate from nmh so if nmh ducks the issue that's fine by me.

I've been wondering about a corpus of emails for testing programs.  The
only public one I've found is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enron_Corpus
which is going to be recent-era emails.  Perhaps if folk on the list
have old emails that were from public mailing lists at the time, we
could build a bit of a collection for testing purposes?  I guess
anonymising private ones would be a can of worms and weaken their worth
anyway?  Perhaps a semi-private collection of those could be collated
though, passed by hand to a known interested party?

Cheers, Ralph.
