While I'm all for such additions I doubt you'll see anything like that 
soon. Maybe with 3.0?

This is something you should consider when you choose a provider. I 
work for such a provider (which will be nameless) and I consider doing

in the mbox and running 'arch' to rebuild the archive only takes a few 
moments of my time.
