It may be easier than you think if MM3 is going to use an active mail
store db.  I'd imagine that HyperArchive would morph into report styles
on top of the db, and RSS (and/or its bretheren) would then be just
another report style.  I'll hang back a bit and get a better picture of
how MM and HyperArchive interrelate before I go shooting my mouth off
too much.
