comment Personal Source Control via SubVersion — stop me before I go too far!
Oh, just remembered another one: when doing a checkout of my home directory to a brand new machine, I have to make sure I touch the mbox index files so that kmail doesn't rebuild them and throw out the read/replied/etc flags on it. Using maildir instead of mbox runs into the 3rd drawback that I already mentioned.
