Message Wow! This tigris stuff is cool!

I see:

"Eyebrowse has the following components:
[...]
     a mySQL database, which stores message index data (message data is
stored in standard mbox file format) "

Pls consider using RDFDB as the backend; I think it's
a more straightforward way to handle querieies like:

    Find all messages in threads involving
    both me and Joe.

i.e.

    select ?msg1, ?subj, ?date from maildb where
        (rfc822:subject ?msg1 ?subj)
        (rfc822:date ?msg1 ?date)

        (sameThread ?msg1 ?msg2)
        (sameThread ?msg1 ?msg3)

        (toFromOrCC ?msg2 mailto:connolly at w3 dot org)
        (toFromOrCC ?msg2 mailto:joe at example dot org) </>

where (sameThread ?x ?y) means
(rfc822:references ?x ?y) or (rfc822:references ?y ?x)
