SpamAssassin has used re2c (via sa-compile) for many years, now, and it seems to work fine, there. GMime also looks promising when combined with Inline::C since GMime can operate on mmap-ed regions. Given the inevitable demise of many .orgs when price rise; supporting a URL rewriter similar to .mailmap makes sense. And HTTP CONNECT seems like something our -httpd can support to let firewalled users read over NNTP.
