>"virecover" should be "YES", IMO.
i prefer "no" because i reboot a lot and the mail is a waste, but then
again, i can set it to no on my machine and be done with it.
fwiw, i think virecover should be run from daily, not from rc.d (or
maybe both). some people may not reboot all that much and they're
missing them, whereas those people that reboot a lot may end up being
inundated by reports they ignore.
it should also use some sort of heuristic like "hmm...this recover.foo
file was last accessed less than a week ago, so i'll assume i read it
when sending it out, and not resend it again just yet".
