Right now, /var/mail and /var/spool/mail both suffer the same problem:
whichever is used, some people need to use the other, hence it is a
*requirement* that both can be used by programs.

Given that, it is better to use /var/mail, because the mail inbox
directory is *not* a spool (a daemon transshipment point -- the mail
*spool* is /var/spool/mqueue.)  Putting it under /var/spool causes
disk space management problems.
