For me there's another compelling reason and that's the ability to use MH 
directly on a mail server which is primarily an imap host where the native 
mail storage format is Maildir.  Right now, my own mail store looks very 
different 
than any of my users because I use MH and they use Maildir.  If I could move 
my mail to Maildir then I could use the web interface or a PC mail client to 
read my mail when I can't get to a command line or exmh.

Of course, I don't think anybody's completely thought through how to do 
sequences in a Maildir yet, and those are important to me.
