> Currently, all mails are always prioritized over regular input, which makes sense in
most cases. However, it's easy to devise an operator that gets into starvation: each mail
enqueues a new mail.
> This ticket implements a simple extension in the mailbox processor: instead of draining
the mailbox one-by-one, fetch all mails from the mailbox and run them one-by-one before running
the default action. Only then, fetch all mails again and repeat.
> So we execute all mails that are available at the start of this loop but no mails that
are added in the meantime.
> Special attention needs to be directed towards yield to downstream, such that it doesn't
process mails outside of the current batch.
