funny.. the folder i was talking about is also
my VIM folder..  89720 messages and counting.
however, the count on vim-dev mails is just 7432.

my neomutt starts up within 3secs on those ~90K
messages..  but without header cache (-hcache).
how big will a mail folder have to be to
make the startup take more than 10secs? hmm..
anyone have a copy of the linux kernel maillist?
