I hacked a crude script to do the merge. It needs more work to become a
really useful tool such as a switch to choose between the UnixMailbox
(more strict From_ recognition) and PortableUnixMailbox (loose From_
recognition) classes and a switch to choose whether Date: or
X-List-Received-Date: is the preferred merge key, but I have attached it
in case it may be useful.
