Munging means, that all headers which should be necessary for archiving 
(and not doing harmful whings to threading) should be ...

Date, From, To, Subject, Message-ID, Mail-Followup-To, References, 
Mime-Version, Content-Type, Content-Disposition, In-Reply-To, 
Resent-Message-ID, Resent-From, X-Mailing-List, X-Loop, The 
List-Headers, Resent-Sender, Resent-Date.

In this case we will untar the archives, do a formail on them and repack 
them again some day. The only thing which matters right now is time to 
do it ;-)

bis dahin/kind regards
