I am interested in adding support for mail.local to deliver to maildirs by adding the required methods for a maildir mailbox, but mail.local seems to be fairly mbox centric. It escapes all of the lines beginning with 'From ' and writes the message to the mailbox's stream. To support appending messages to a maildir using this stream interface I would have to do some pretty funky things in mailbox_open and mailbox_close to handle the creation of the new message file in the tmp dir and subsequent renaming into the new dir. I was wondering why mail.local doesn't use mailbox_append_message to add the new message? The performace hit of having to create a message object?
