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 ;-)
