I don't claim to understand the mystery that is google's crawler, but I
think it might not crawl pages arbitrarily deep, especially if those URLs
are similar. I suspect this because I know that when google is pointed at a
lurker archive, it only 'discovers' the first few thousand or so emails.

Though I am only theorizing, this behaviour makes sense if you think about
it. Google's crawler has to avoid traversing infinitely deep dynamic
content. Also, google only indexes 8 billion pages. Some sites have more
content than this all by themselves; google shouldn't spend all its
resources indexing just those sites.
