Supporting EML (MIME e-mail) input format?

Hi, I'd find it great if .eml (plaintext e-mail files, as produced by Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird, see Wikipedia) would be supported as an input format. Writing the input filter should be relatively easy, as .eml files should contain well-formed plaintext or HTML messages. This feature would be useful for compiling largish e-mail archives into a form that is human-readable without using a dedicated e-mail reader (such as an EPUB or PDF ebook).

Is there any interest in doing this? Thanks!

It's actually pretty easy to do because python already has an excellent email parsing library, but I've got too much on my plate right now.
