Definitely an improvement over the repeatupload stuff. It would make sense 
for upload_messages_from() to also use index_list_work(), although the 
chance of a monster UPLOAD from a normal append is much lower.

I would prefer sync_index_list_free() to be called in the parent routine 
upload_messages_list() rather than as a side effect to index_list_work(), 
but that is probably just personal style.
