Since IHAVE/SENDME is supported you can just pipe the list through
grephistory with the -s flag
  grephistory -s <mids >toks
or hand the message-id's to innxmit and not bother with doing any lookup
by hand.

I wish there was a nice flag to get mid+tok out to hand innfeed, but I
do it so seldom it hardly matters.
