I think that what CWG is worrying about is just the interface his
Lisp mailer will use to access the existing UNIX mail data base,
which is kept while we're running on top of UNIX for compatability
reasons. Once we dump UNIX, he can dump this lower layer and just
store his mail objects directly. CWG, please agree with me :-)
