The bulk of the work for mail is done by the mail filter.  The crawler
isn't a particularly interesting piece; it just looks in a certain
directory.  The main differentiation is KMail-specific code, which is
why it's more suitable as KMailQueryable.  We can add a MuttQueryable if
there's a good reason for it.  In most cases, the filesystem backend
should handle it.
