A pay-for Mac app that archives email into SQLite or MySQL databases. Looks pretty awesome for searchable backups. Need the pro version for large volumes of email (>100,000 messages).

"Is there a space for a piece of user-installable software, like Movable Type or Wordpress, that aggregates their data from sites across the web, and then presents it as a site?" Yes. Maybe even a WordPress plugin...?

Mathusalem - Google Code
Interesting-sounding backup utility for Mac OS X. Backs up in the background to "local drives, iDisk, WebDAV, AFP, SMB, FTP, SFTP or Amazon S3". Maybe for when StrongSpace finally disappears. (via Tom Taylor on Twitter)
