Yay!  I'll be happy to admit I just sort of threw that together.

Trying... but it seems to have major problems with python2.2.
It barfs on enumerate(), and it doesn't seem to be picking up
continuation lines, either, so I suspect the file reading style
you're using isn't grokked correctly, either.

Oops.  Doh.  Thanks for catching that.  All my mail gets received
and timestamped by my local machine, so the timezones weren't an
issue... but ignoring time of day entirely is rather embarassing.
