No.  It's a good idea.  I'm not sure any of the databases provide a
method for identifying their own files, so we'd have to implement
file(1) ourselves.

Mutt assumes it's got the right file for the job.
This can lead to problems.

No.  We've inherited Mutt's $header_cache rules:
    Existing dir -> separate files for mailboxes
    Non-existant -> one big file for all mailboxes

The changes are a refactoring of the code to improve clarity and
maintenance.  They're not a re-imagining for the header-cache.
