Hi Bron

Sorry for the delay and thank you for pushing this work to master.

A) While doing this, some of the logic was broken.  (This is now fix.)
B) The new solution works very well with a mix of archive (in object
storage) and non archive (on regular spool) emails.
C) Unarchive have been fix.  (was used previously to remove email from
object storage.  Now a new function is used for that).
D) Include reconstruct support.  Works very well if message.db file is

Please let me know if you can update master again from here

When is the next meeting? Jean-Francois and I would like to attend

> objectstorage errors by creating non-ARCHIVED files.
> 4) fixed file copy in mailbox_archive to work the same way as the file

> objectstorage and gets the file back, so unarchive works.
> WARNING WARNING WARNING: while I've tested that normal operation and
> normal archive file operation (non-objectstorage) works correctly with
> Cassandane and FastMail experimental branch, I haven't done more than
> rudimentary testing with the dummy objectstorage.
> I'm almost positive that reconstruct won't work correctly with object
> storage turned on right now.
