I applied a modified version of this as #704.  I don't see the
slowdown on threading now, but I do see the slowdown in generation.  I
think that it can be solved by doing a little bit of caching early on

Eg. ->filename could be determined at load time for instance, rather
than the $x times now (once per index, and once per message it's a
thread with).  Will fiddle with that later.

Fixed in Email::Simple cvs.
