I thought we were talking about replacing the 7th edition mbox file 
format for the raw or the similar mbox-like format for the cooked 
archives.  Using some sort of a hashed directory structure would 
allow a lot more flexibility in terms of going in and deleting or 
editing messages in the archive, along with many other benefits it 
might bring.

However, if you imagine python-list with hundreds of thousands of 
messages in the archive, there's just no way that could possibly 
scale with Maildir, Maildir+, or any other solution that does not 
enforce a good hashed directory scheme that is kept invisible to the 
higher-level applications.
