You're thinking of modifying ipurge to do this? Sounds like a nice
idea. Messages are moved to Trash with COPY, and COPY retains the
original INTERNALDATE. However, the last_updated is set to NOW on
COPY, so that's probably what you want. ipurge currently supports
SENTDATE and INTERNALDATE. A cursory review suggests that adding
LAST_UPDATED is trivial -- not that I've tested it :)
Is there some reason you're not running 2.3.x? I'm not aware of any
plans to make new 2.2.x releases, certainly not for feature
