I've been messing with my current archive setup having the current
PHP-based pages of variable assignments post-processed into SQL INSERT
statements.  A CGI then reads the SQL DB and builds the thread tree
dynamically on display.  It works fairly well.  Not great, but it works.
Handling the thread tree elegantly when In-Reply-To and References are
bad is non-trivial.

  ObNote: cacheing the thread tree would be smart but is not that easy.
