I like this idea. Add a hook to call a plugin for: (1) indexing new
messages, (2) moving/deleting messages, and (3) performing full text
It seems reasonable these days with GB+ sized mailboxes, to violate this
part of the IMAP RFC (2060) and use a powerful search engine like Lucene
which doesn't support substring matches:
6.4.4. SEARCH Command
In all search keys that use strings, a message matches the key if
the string is a substring of the field.
