Good point.  It would be great from a the perspective of
somebody who wants to read and store all the mail; but it
might also be bad for people who only want a list subset.
Wouldn't be good for pack reuse on the server side, either.

Hmm... that's a pretty cool idea, but I wonder if people would find it
annoying to have to pull all the lkml-related objects if all they care
about are messages from, say, netdev. For archiving purposes I think it
would be great, but I'm less sure about UX impacts.

OK, so I've been strongly considering having git repos based on
YYYY or YYYY-MM because of shardability and ease-of-maintenance.

The other thing is I think we can support is subsystem lists
({netdev,fsdevel,stable}@vger) in the SAME git repo(s) with a
different head for each list.  That could make subsystem lists
cheaper to archive since there's a lot of overlap with the main
list.

Headers like the List-Id:, Sender:, etc will still differ for
archival purposes and have different object_id in git; but git
should be able to delta well based on the rest of the message
based on age.

Inspired by interest in LKML archival:
