I'm actively working on rmail-mbox-branch for one year now.  I had to
fix and redo many functions and the diff was growing too fast.  It's
200 KB (diffs to rmail*) + 20 KB (diffs to mail-utils) + 70 KB (a new
MIME library which is IMHO cleaner than the one we have in Gnus).

What's working already:
 * message sorting (name, date, size, etc.), filtering (based on
 labels), editing (complicated by MIME)
 * header field sorting, filtering, RFC 2047, RFC 2231
 * some text, image, message and multipart MIME handlers
 * simple MIME-compose functions (to be heavily changed soon)

I have some new ideas which I'll be working on.

I would very like to integrate all my changes into Emacs CVS, but it
is by no means complete or even better than the current

If you take my changes as a base, I will find time to fix whatever you
consider broken in my code.  Thank you.
