I've sent him a working example that disassembles mailboxes in both mbox and maildir form. Personally, I'm now scouting around for code that will let you delete and expunge messages from an mbox mailbox. I fear I need to pull my thumb out and expand the mailbox module to handle writing as well. mbox manipulations are butt ugly.
