The modifications to do it are simple. The routine delmsg() in
mhamain.pl is what is used to delete a message from an archive.
Until an "official" change is available, you can modify the
routine to skip the file deletion. If you use -rmm, then you
will need to conditionalize file deletion based on auto-deletion
or explicit deletion.
