If you have just one mbox-file, sequential reading/searching mbox might
be fast, but when you mutate a lot, storing messages into individual
files and subfolders in separate dirs looks more efficient.

Quite true but there is a WTF reaction on my part.

WTF are you doing altering emails?

Or do you mean something different from that by "mutate"?

As for INCOMING! opening the mbox file and doing an append ... append ... append ... isn't inefficient. It probably more efficient that doing a step and repeat of ''create, append, close'.

How much of a pizzing match do you want to engage in here?
Not least of all because different file systems grow files in different ways and different file system handle growing directories on file create in different ways. So mailbox vs maildir gets to be more like comparing apples to picasso paintings than apples to oranges.

How long did the whining go on when KDE2 went on KDE3?

The only universal constant is change. If a species can not adapt it
goes extinct. That's the law of the universe, adapt or die.
