I for one welcome the idea of encouraging more contributors & 
contributions, especially with respect to extension authors, and getting 
certain features into the core functionality - for example, I'd love to

My only comment about this particular feature (the ability to actually 
*modify* an email in a mail store) is, in my opinion, if this is done, a 
new header should always be added decumenting the change (including 
explicitly stating the old and new values), ie:

X-SubjectModified: OLD: Blahblah; NEW: blahBlahBlah
