    It's both feasible and desirable. In fact, we discussed it quite a bit
    almost a year ago, although this was mostly in-person at the Menlo Park
    meetings, and some details may not have been shared over the list.

    I've been sketching out notes for a mail repository, with mail that can be
    granularly addressed using HyTimes/DSSSL Groves. Using this repository,
    XLink and RDF could be used to respectively link to and categorize
    e-mails. There are several open source RDF implementations, and I've been
    sketching out a design for an open source link database, which could be
    used by other OHS-related projects. I'll keep people posted on the
    ohs-dev mailing list.

    However, in the interim, one could easily modify any one of the mail
    archiving programs to add Purple/PLink-style addresses to e-mail.

    Incidentally, the Foresight folks wrote Critmail, a modification to
    Hypermail that replaces e-mail quoting with Critlinks. I believe those
    modifications have made it back to the main Hypermail distribution. This
    functionality is definitely desirable; an e-mail quote, after all, is just
    a transclusion to a section of an e-mail.
