I am using poplib and I noticed that calls to top() don't return the msg
info (2nd index in the returned list, e.g.,0)[1]) in the
same order, by that I mean the date could be,0)[1][2] or,0)[1][5], etc. Is there a reason for that other than that
may be how the server is sending them? Why not re-order them and send
back a list that always had the date as element n or even better a dict?

Thank you,
