Well, actually the more important thing from my point of view (which i
didn't mention admittedly, oops), is to be able to get from a list to all
the deferred messages currently associated with it. If this is possible
with the db structure as-is then thats cool, i just can't see how to do it
and could do with some help on that front.

Sorry i didn't put in [more of] the reasoning behind it. Does this message
give enough to be of help?
