maildir has some advantages, and the disadvantages you pointed out are
valid. Still, in some situations, the advantages are worth it.

I didn't want to comment on this, but you are just bashing without having

We should take this to the qmail list, unless you want to discuss building a
gnome qmail configuration tool ;-) (which would better fitter in with
linuxconf anyway)
