erm, it already is wrapped in a BufferedOutputStream - see MboxFolder, line

at the moment, the mbox provider trades size for speed: it reads an entire
mailbox into memory at a time. obviously this strategy won't work for very
large mailboxes.

i would like to keep this implementation which works well and fast for small
mailboxes, plus develop a solution which keeps the minimum amount of data in
memory in order to work with huge mailboxes (heuristics can be used to
decide which strategy to use for any given mailbox).


failing that, how about writing a maildir and/or mh provider?
