Yeah. That works if you're using mbox format files. But if you're are a
Maildir user like myself you're basically screwed, because 
 $ git am <Maildir> 
expects the Maildir to be *sorted* and because mails normally don't
arrive in the right order, git-am will therefore try to apply the
patches in the wrong order. (Maybe this should be reported to the git
mailing-list)

So if there are mutt users out there who use "mbox_type=Maildir" and
know how to save a thread to a single mbox file, then please let me
know.
Thanks.
