"Recommended for large (no of mailboxes) spools". "Large" depends on
your filesystem. Linux/ext3 takes some 15 thousend-and-odd users
without hashing "fast enough". Do your own tests on your hardware,
with your filesystem-of-choice and your OS (this might reduce the number
of filesystems to choose from).
