Well, I would never dream of making mbx the default format as the
default setting. The default setting should be the default setting of
the software, which is mbox. What I'd like to see is a flag in the
imap-uw port that causes the port to be built with mbx as the default
It would have to be intentionally enabled. Users of the port would be
unaffected unless they wanted to be.
