qmail's default delivery method is specified on the command line (ver >= 
1.01), so this would be a simple configuration option.   ``deliver'' could be 
used for central spool delivery, just as it is for sendmail.

I wasn't saying that Maildir/ should be the only option, but since it is (or 
seems to be) the only secure option, why not make it the default for people 
who don't know the difference.

Cheers, Phil.
