Your message inspired me to give it a try from the QuickSilver angle.  
What I have come up with now isn't exactly awesome but I mapped 'L' to 
CopyasLink in my keybind preferences, and then bring up QuickSilver and 
use the text insert shortcut '.' to give me an input, type:

	- Something about this email 'cmd-v'

and then use a "send to TaskPaper" AppleScript I found on the TaskPaper 
wiki that sends it to the Inbox: project in the frontmost TaskPaper 
document.  This will hold me over until I can play with REST or I see 
that something is new and improved in the scripting side of MailMate.

It may seem silly that I'm harping on wanting to push one button instead 
of typing a brief description and set of hotkeys, but it would make 
triaging an Inbox completely trivial for my TaskPaper workflow.

I haven't played with that much but when I CopyasLink I get a message 
URL in my clipboard like this:


and then clicking that opens the message even if I have subsequently 
Archived it or saved it to another folder like a yearly archive folder.

For getting some context (and seeing follow-ups and replies) have you 
found it useful to use "Go to Source" when the message is open?  That 
will show you the message in a full MailMate viewer with whatever 
conversation view/context you would normally have.
