Glad to hear it.  :)

Yes, there's agreement on that subject.  It's just a matter of the fastest way
to get something up and running.  If you submitted stuff that only worked with
e.g. Xapian, IMO that would be fine for now too.  Eventually we'll want to
consolidate, of course.

Yes it's there.

Curiously, it's not linked from the project homepage:

Most projects have the svn link under a "resources" tab.  I
can probably whip up a patch for that.

I think it's just mbox, since is powered by mod_mbox.
Whatever it is, parsing won't be a challenge.
