You perhaps think we are adding Perdition to the mix, and assuming we 
have a single box that might get overloaded.  No, we've had Perdition 
running on a load-balanced pool of 4 Linux boxes for about a year and a 
half.  This was our abstraction to hide the 10+ UW-IMAP servers from the 
user population and to ease account migration between mail-stores.  I 
expect this migration will take some months to complete, and the ability 
to hide from the user what mail-store they are on will be essential.  I 
imagine we'll keep using Perdition I can't see a compelling reason at 
the moment to move to a Murder setup. .
