That's the bulk of it.  We can also get rid of a lot of wasted CPU
cycles because mbox files are seekable (since every message starts with
"From ") and the Evo summaries are not.  Which means that we don't have
to iterate over 70,000 messages just to index 3 new ones.  We can keep
an offset in the mbox.

We lose the flags, but AFAICT that's all we lose.  And yeah, those would
be tracked through the e-plugin.
