At 125ms ping away from the server, and a dance of Twalk, Topen, Tstat, 
Tread, Tread (again! but this is a topic for another thread) and Tclunk 
for each file, 800ms per email, it would take me over 2h so I left it 
copying and went to sleep. It was done today morning.

I skipped the touch, and I had to make sure the plumber was running, but 
it worked :)

Reading the nupas.pdf document, it sounds like the whole point of the 
idx file is to let upas/fs work without having to read every single 
message file to get its metadata. I don't know if it being read-only 
would cause trouble, but maybe if there was a more or less up to date 
idx file in the server, this would be fast for everybody, without 
needing the local copy?

Regardless, some clearer instructions in that website would do wonders :)
