RE: Filename guarantees

The only major change that might occur is changing from a numeric
system of identifying messages to using message-ids.  I.e.  The
filenames would be the message-id of the message.  This would
allow links to not go stale, or change, if an archive is

I might also throw in that the M-ID is intended to be unique per message,
but that in some cases (non-compliant, broken mailers or list-software)
it might not turn out to be, so MHonArc should provide a means of detecting
if a M-ID is already used as an identifier (filename) and then select a
replacement one (add a suffix?).

just my E= 0.02
