 * 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
+  via davfs2 or fusedav to avoid full clones.
+* Improve tree layout to help giant archives (v2 format):
+  * Must be optional; old ssoma users may continue using v1
+  * Xapian becomes becomes a requirement when using v2; they
+    claim good scalability: https://xapian.org/docs/scalability.html
+  * 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?

+    with bitmaps and we want to use both features.  Perhaps this
+    limitation can be fixed in git instead of merely being documented:
