Set HOLD_MESSAGES_AS_PICKLES=0 in your mm_cfg.py file and any messages
waiting for approval will be stored as plaintext instead of Python
pickles. It's less efficient, but who cares?
Just be sure that when you edit the held message file, you save it in
a form that the email Parser's lax parsing mode can grok. IOW,
conform to the RFCs and you'll be cool.
