Cool. Glad to be of assistance. One problem that is created when I go
removing messages and regenerating the whole archive, is the message
numbers change, and so the actual URLs of individual posts changes, which
is really going to bugger up out of date search engines, i.e., you search
for something, and Google says it's on page x, but after a regen, it's
actually on page y, you'll either get a 404 or a completely different post
than what you expected. I'd expect that the problem would resolve itself
as soon as the particular search engine reindexes the archive, but it's
something to bear in mind.

As I said, I'm trying to work towards the point where the archive gets
broken out by month, and has multiple pages etc, it's just a matter of
time on my behalf.
