I do have a script somewhere for converting mbox archives to RDF (SIOC,
FOAF, DC Terms, etc). I used this to import the entire backhistory
of this mailing list, and several other W3C mailing lists, into a Jena
SDB store, and then put a demiblog3 <http://demiblog.org/> installation
in front of it.

While the result was pretty good, it was incredibly slow and
CPU-intensive, so it's offline right now. :-(
