Actually, that is precisely what you did. You said that we shouldn't
bother implementing something that XFS and ReiserFS would fix anyway,
and that people who would be running Mailman would "obviously" choose
to run the "best" filesystem for their application.
Your claims to the contrary are disingenuous, at best.

We're talking about maildir-mailbox-per-list. So, all known issues
with Maildir mailboxes would be applicable, because they would *be*
Maildir mailboxes. The fact that we would be using Maildir mailboxes
as a method of handling incoming messages instead of having them
written to a 7th edition mbox-format mailbox, is purely an
application-level implementation detail.
That said, I'm done arguing with you and Barry. You guys go do
whatever you want.
