Woah Nellie!  I just had a look at this, and we're not really 
comparing mbox to Maildir, we're comparing Courier IMAP to 

I've yet to meet a sysadmin who's managed a UW-IMAP server who
did not also think that its performance sucked.  I don't think
this has anything to do with mbox vs. Maildir, but entirely to
do with UW's implementation.  If I felt like digging through the
archives of mutt-users, I could post benchmarks that paint a
very different picture.

But I don't.  If you're curious, feel free.  See the mailing list
section at www.mutt.org.  The archives are linked in there...
