But wouldn't the split be: (spool) mbox on the local filesystem, $HOME on NFS?  
And if it was further fragmented, we can't get down to that level of 
granularity, anyway.  (Well, maybe we can on a per-tool basis -- I haven't 
traced the code that deeply yet -- but that seems like a very contrived 

I can't recall any other software (other than regression testers designed to 
break things) that supports changing the locking at run time like this.
