I don't think this is a big worry, those variables have been used for a 
while and are unlikely to be changed, though I expect that over time 
everyone will gravitate to using the freedesktop ones more and more (XFCE 
switched completely already). But as freedesktop profiles are already 
supported that shouldn't be a problem.

2. Plain-text mail recommended since I move html and double
    format mails to a low priority folder (they're mainly spam)
