One thing about both approaches, is that they will consume more space; eg. on my 'Sent' folder with 21k messages - on average (on ext3) we will chew ~2k of space for each of these; which is ~40Mb - around 2%. For my cvs commits mail archive, perhaps the worst case, of 350Mb, (22334 mails) - this would also be around 43Mb - at ~12%. That's not as bad as I was worried about; though of course there is some overhead in terms of inodes and directory entries to worry about that will crank up the overall size - but it doesn't seem horrible even on ext3. Of course - ext4 / btrfs will do a much better job here too; so - less to worry about in future.
