[bug-mailutils] UIDL and POP, best way?

Can someone tell me why mailutils, when getting the uidl value from a POP server (message_get_uidl())
calculates a checksum from the whole message (ie. downloading the whole message) ?

Also, though i only checked once, when i then want to retrieve the email i just got the uidl value from,
it will be downloaded again, ie. it is not cached in any way.

Pls see attached code:


$ ./popuidl  pop://user:address@hidden
1 a96fa32c886e377470055559985bd209
2 dbee79def70024218ab529158193c7ef
3 da1b10a3155b3922acfddf47787e4d43

$ telnet localhost 110
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

2 41ee313e00000002
3 41ee313e00000003

I was wondering if i should use the mu_pop3_uidl() function from the
example.  But then my code would have to differentiate between mailboxes which is not really what i
was hoping from mailutils.

Is there a better way?!

Thanxs for any help or pointers,
