Already done - use the -1 (number one) option.

It should be easy to extend the patch I did last night for duplicates to cope with missing message-ids as well. Hypermail expects that it can use message-ids and in-reply-to fields as a definitive source of threading information - of course that's not going to work but we can always fall back to threading using the subject line.

The most likely source of archives with no message-ids I can think of would be a simple conversion from a listserv notebook archive to a Unix format mailbox.
