for starters, case insensitive match, if you need it. For other more advanced 
things see 'man procmailrc' and 'man procmailex'.

Another thing is the more user friendly configuration of procmail. To setup 
filters with GUI-dialogs is no fun.

Last but not least is procmail one example of the well known unix philosophy. 
IIRC 'One (excellent) tool for one job'. Because of that, k3b uses 
cdrecord/cdrdao instead of implementing own burning code.
