You appear to be reading more into my comments than what was actually there.
Certainly GNOME mail apps should have support for Maildir boxes as Qmail
is used in increasing numbers of sites on the internet.  All I was commenting
on was the statement that it is unfortunate that Red Hat Software ship sendmail
(instead of, obviously, Qmail).
I did not, and will not, propose that GNOME apps not support Maildir.  That's
just plain silly, and I agree totally that any such proposal should be ignored.
The more mailbox formats that are supported, the better for the person using
the mail tools.
