Did not have time to work on it further yet.

The only dumb idea I have in mind is hardlinking all mail to separate
directory in order to make a "pristine copy" which does not change as
time goes. This directory could be cleaned up: if some file has only 1
link, then it was deleted from main mail spool and should be deleted
From copy too.
