Not entirely.  It is certainly possible to use it to read email, but is
has some deficencies in the area of coding-systems.  It currently
doesn't do any decoding from raw-text at all.  The main problem is that
if we want interoperability with other tools (which I guess is the main
reason to switch to the mbox format), we can't really encode the
mailboxes with emacs-mule anymore as is done with BABYL boxes.
