This might be a useful piece of code:

It's already in C#.  Unfortunately it's licensed under the GPL, but
maybe the author would be willing to relicense for us.

Also, Gmail has recently added support for IMAP, so there's always the
ability to index those emails through Evolution, Thunderbird, etc.
Obviously not an ideal solution, but it should work.
