So do you mean that whenever someone reads the header with a specific method,
the header is parsed just-in-time?
If so, this seems like something very easy to add in an Email::MIME subclass to
show it off.
Of course, it's also easy to take the hypothetical code behind
"upgrade_headers($email)" to do something just like this, on a per-known-header

I never suggested that anything was changed by virtue of being read, but rather
that one could explictly upgrade structures if desired.

Why would this not be possible? There is some object storing the mailboxes
structure, and it provides methods that answer the questions one needs to ask.
