One simple one - I want my mail on the spool disk. Its in the grows
randomly, mostly crap, doesnt cause hassle if it fills for a while

I have no problem with a "both paths must one work one or more may be a
symlink". At that point however the FHS should mandate one which may be a
symlink only. Right now everyone uses /var/spool/mail whats the technical
reason for using /var/mail that is good enough to justify the change ?
