Yes, _please_.  I have several NetBSD systems where the current /var/mail
system works just great and I would _hate_ having to recompile/configure
or even patch the existing software to get one of the most basic functions
of a UNIX system working.  I could use the homedir delivery on two machines
(out of 10+), but why _force_ the people to make those big changes?

Please let the root decide what is best for his/her system.  Please.
