after my ~/.sup/sources.yaml was wiped out, i tried sup-adding all my
sources and running sup-sync --changed on them, but got the ferret error
so i removed ~/.sup/ferret/* and started from scratch. i built my index and
tried to restore its state with the sup-dump backup from the night before.
everything went well for a time, then it died with this error:
ruby -I lib -w bin/sup-sync --restored --restore sup-backup-2007-06-08-22:08:15
Scanned 2, added 0, updated 2 messages from mbox:///firstname.lastname@example.org.
Restored state on 2 (100.00%) messages.

[so i had to find and manually label messages in sup which had labels in the
backup. the bright side is that i'm getting good at writing scripts to fix
sup when it falls down. :)]
