	Single scalars ?  I was thinking more of bins:

	sizebins="4 64 1000 0"  # Bin upper bound values in kilobytes
				# "0" is magic meaning "no limit"

	That way messages with sizes up to this much (what is message
	size anyway ?  headers + body ? Or headers + body + envelope ?)
	are stored into same bin.  When no sizebins are defined, all
	messages are stored into the same bin.

	Shudder...  -- no, I have not tasted it, but prospects of
	drinking large amounts of alcohol are not my idea about a
	good evening.  At home (or with friends) I usually serve
	myself a half-a-shot (2 cl) of cognac, for example.
	Also I am supposedly on diet trying to drop two of my 15
	stones of weight (for imperially challenged, your UNIXes
	have 'units' command, ask 'stones' vs, 'kg' -- or vs. 
	'pounds' ...)

	Yes, definitely I am willing to taste it, but not overdo it :)
