Somebody (Daniel Borkmann?) posted a (very fast) public-inbox git to
maildir converter, with procmail support. I assume that would actually
satisfy this step already, since you can just substitute the patchwork
parser for procmail.

Not sure he had an incremental mode figured out there, but that can't
really be all *that* hard, just store the last-successfully-parsed git
