I'm really glad you mentioned this on our list! My "Archive" mail folder
has ~30000 messages, and I rarely opened it because of how long it would
take Mutt to load them all. With this option enabled, it loads almost
instantly, once the cache is created.


I agree that we should build our Mutt with this option enabled.

If everyone agrees, the question is which database to use — we have gdbm
and bdb in our package tree (I think tokyocabinet is a WIP). I have no
idea which database is a better choice. What do people think?
