Subscribers can retrieve message number N from the list's archive by 
sending a message to <gentoo-scm+get-N@l.g.o> (change the N 
to the number of the desired message).

What a tease this is... anybody know, is there a way to get an index of 
the message #'s and actually use this feature to be able to reply to 
before-my-time threads gracefully?

Dare I hope that I could just pull these numbers out of In-Reply-To: 
headers according to some trivial recipe?
