Partly I have been leaving things up so I could restart the process
if the script fails.

I like the idea of a verifier/deleter.

I have a delete up to my imap tracker script.  A verifier will probably
share a lot of logic with the imap importer script, but since it only
has to confirm something is stable before deleting, it isn't quite the

Time permitting I will play with that next.
