I don't seem to have gotten an earlier message.

I discovered that when I uploaded revised code last night, I hadn't
changed to the right directory. I found the problem this morning,
and moved the files to the right place. If you don't see something
under every tab, you have old code.

There are 860 lines of noncomment, nonblank code, as of this release.

Things I hope to do between now and Wednesday are:

1. Add browse buttons on the filter entry fields for subjects and dates.

2. Add simulated input, so that there will be data in the listboxes.

3. Add a set of radiobuttons to the processing page to make more clear
the meanings of selections in the list boxes.

For the further future:

1. Work out the encoding of data so that Corey will know what to read
and write.

2. See how to merge Jeff's ideas to improve visibility.

I'm wondering if we can drop a requirement to put the output of a single
mailbox to multiple archives (except through the use of filters). If
we do, there are some substantial simplifications result. (We would
still support multiple mailboxes going to a single archive.)
