This highlights another recent question: do we want to stop using
the email package in favor of our own (presumably lightweight)
message parser?

Personally, I don't care if the throughput of hammie is under
10 messages per second... my mail feed isn't that dense (and I'll
be very disurbed if it becomes so), and people who do have denser
feeds should probably have a daemon process for filtering instead
of firing off a new process for each message.
