ok, after extensive(and annoying I'm sure, apologies) testing, we're 
totally fucked in the goat ass. :)

I got the sequence for MG to match what we were 
outputing(thlist.sequence+120037), but that only addresses future 
postings, not past ones.

and even if we could get them to match, the sequences in MG are based on 
reply-to's not the order which they come in at.(so there goes bumping 
our seqeunce up by 120037)

directory on leo
