trunk was forked from 2.3.0 several years ago now and contains
significant differences not only in organisation but also design. i
doubt whether anyone has the time required to perform a comprehensive
manual comparison now whether the mailets are in trunk or elsewhere.

i think that moving the mailets into a separate project should make
things move managable. the mailets moved can be compared with 2.3.x
and (once this has been done) a single consolidated library can used
for both 2.x and 3.x releases (as well as trunk).
