cool: i'm very interested in helping out

the mailet 2.4 API is limited by backwards compatibility and is too
tightly bound to RFC822. for the mailet 3 API, i favour a move to a
more flexible approach suitable for more general MIME-typed
document+meta-data messages. James already support NNTP but the 2.4
API prevents news being processed by mailets and made available
through IMAP, POP3 etc. i'm very keen on mixing blog feeds into the
mix (RSS, Atom in and out) plus flexible, extensible storage based on
a JCR (jackrabbit).

as part of the geronimo integration work, an alternative spool service
based on a high performance service bus (probably Camel) needs to be
created. this will allow easy distribution and integration with JMS.
