Careful with post-processing; you do not want to mangle message-ids.
MSG ID's seems a specious case as all the MSG ID's would be
identically munged, retaining referential correctness.
It is a problem. MHonArc would not know about the munging, so it
will not be able to hyperlink message-ids when messages are added
that are referenced by other messages. The munging would have to be
embedded into MHonArc so it knows how to match the ids properly.
more signigicant concern is that the post processing resets the time
stamps on the touched files, removing (potentially) MHonArc's Date:
header based time stamping. This can screw some search tools.
