Re: Resolutions to comments on LSB-FHS-TS_SPEC_V1.0

10+ million Linux boxes use /var/spool/mail. Its also a spurious claim. All
existing tools assume linux uses /var/spool/mail. Other systems even sharing
via NFS dont get problems with this /var/spool usage

> 2. Disk space management.

We've proved between us that both views are held here. This therefore is a
rather spurious claim. A (maybe) symlink called /var/spool/mail that points 
somewhere arbitary is all that is needed for this issue. The FHS need
say nothing else

Your arguments don't IMHO hold water, nor in fact anything else
