I was planning on implementing that for dbox also.

I guess that could be done also. Currently it stores headers and body  
in separate fields but in one row.

If this is implemented I think most of the code is going to be  
generic, so if it's implemented to one storage it could somewhat  
easily be implemented to all of them. Of course not in any standard  
way to mbox/maildir.
