Hey, that's a neat thought. You wouldn't even have to use Critmail
to make this work, actually -- if you just put an archive of your
mailbox online somewhere, and got CritLink to read all the messages,
you'd have the backlinks you wanted.

Cool idea! But i'm afraid it may be dangerous to violate the
principle of predictability. The impression i get about DWIM-type
things is that they get unwieldy because increasing their "smarts"
makes them more complex and less predictable. Still, this may be
a good thought for CritLink, someday...
