I completely agree with you and reached the same conclusion that it's better to upgrade the mbox, Either it's all 0000 or all 0001 but remembering when to do 0000 and when to do 0001 is hard.

For those people who have only been working with 0001 and have not rebuilt their archives, the option will be useful. For all the others, it's better that we advice them that they need to pad their original mboxes or do something else to avoid breaking links when rebuilding.

Is it ok if I commit the bug fix in the meantime? And if you want the new option, I can code and commit it later today. We still have time for discussing this.
