Oops, taking back most of what I said in previous message. Remembering some
past mod_python example, maniputating mail messages seems more flexible 
than initially thought.
And all mod_python message archives look like simple flat text files (.gz).
So, on second look, moving the entire modpython archive to apache could be
done in something like, I don't know, 20-30 lines of python code.
