I've started tooling around with a maildir worker a bit. Before I go too deep, I just wanted to check whether work has already been done on this, or if you had any particular design thoughts?

Side note, mbox is really not supposed to be used for a mail backend. You'll need to read the whole archive on startup, and all write operations will require you to rewrite the whole file. Also, things like flags are not supported.

I understand, but I still think it's a valuable feature to have. Not every backend needs to support every feature, and aerc can provide a nice comfy interface for reading and writing mbox files for those who are looking specifically for that.

I would love to be able to select multiple emails from my inbox and export them into an mbox archive. Is this currently possible?

I suppose this is a requirement if one wants to reply to a patch they weren't CC'ed in?

requirement is a stretch, you only need the messageId header to do the threading.

But it would make it more convenient as you can import the lkml threats or whatever you are looking at yes.
