Subject Re: FYI: SlopGenerator added (as the unstable "slop" block)

Can your SlopGenerator handle multiple mail messages per file? If so, that would be 
excellent, as it will make it possible to build a poor-man's mailing list archive. 
Subscribe a mailbox to the list and point the SlopGenerator at its unix mailbox file. 

This is something I could really do with.
