dbox is half-designed to support this. It supports arbitrary metadata
(unlike maildir) and I've already written 3 lines of code to get this
implemented ;)

	/* Pointer to external message data. Format is:
	   1*(<start offset> <byte count> <ref>) */

There's no code to actually read/write such metadata though. Also I'm
not exactly sure what the <ref> is. Maybe just a filename used to store
the data.
