 * more and better test cases (use git fast-import to speed up creation)
 
 * large mbox/Maildir/MH/NNTP spool import (see PublicInbox::Import)

+* Read-only WebDAV interface to the git repo so it can be mounted

+  * Allow git to perform better deltafication for quoted messages
+
+  * Changing tree layout for deltafication means we need to handle
+    deletes for spam differently than we do now.
+
+  * Deal with duplicate Message-IDs (web UI, at least, not sure about NNTP)
+
+  * (Maybe) SQLite alternatives (MySQL/MariaDB/Pg) for NNTP article
+    number mapping: https://www.sqlite.org/whentouse.html

+  * Ref rotation (splitting heads by YYYY or YYYY-MM)
+
+  * Support multiple git repos for a single archive?
+    This seems gross, but splitting large packs in in git conflicts
+    with bitmaps and we want to use both features.  Perhaps this
+    limitation can be fixed in git instead of merely being documented:
