Also keep in mind that, in general, many/most message headers today are
often as large, or larger than, the actual message body, especially for
list mail. Just take a look at messages from this for evidence.
Thus, I'd think that going out of your way to avoid indexing message
bodies wouldn't be worth the effort/headaches involved.
