Just an aside about public-inbox: Starting with version 0.7 it ships
with a ‘lei’ tool that can be used to query a local or remote
public-inbox repo, and export the matching messages to a maildir.

So the above would become something like:

$ lei q -o <maildir> -I <path or URL to public-inbox repo> -t <query>

The maildir can even be updated later with newer messages matching the
query with:

$ lei up <maildir>
