I do need to implement enough, so that people have examples to work from.  I
don't think I am at that point yet(none of process has been implemented)

Well, sorry to disappoint.  Some of these features are rather low-level, and
rather intruisive into the behind-the-scenes workings.  I would not want them
developed on the live system, with live data.

On that note, once the system gets close to feature parity with the current
code, I'll install it somewhere, and copy all mail from master to it, and run
in parallel.

Well, I'll be making a test framework, so verifying that features work
correctly will be easy to do.  This obviously includes a small set of working
files for each test to play with and manipulate.
