should probably be completed before we make the switch.

It turns out this is already in Pmail. In order to use Pmail without worrying about inflicting any damage to Rmail (RMAIL) do the following:

Copy RMAIL to PMAIL and then invoke M-x pmail with 'pmail-preserve-inbox set to t and everything else being equal, i.e. use the same setup for Pmail that you would for Rmail.

This will convert your PMAIL file to mbox format automagically and allow you to test Pmail and switch back to Rmail at any point without any loss of messages.
