Because Haiku is now the generally acknowledged future of BeOS, and the 
mail daemon is a legitimate system component, and all our developers 
are also Haiku developers, Dr. Zoidberg Enterprises, the all-powerful 
and all-knowing makers of the Mail Daemon Replacement, are moving it 
into the Haiku CVS tree. Besides, we get free nightly builds this way. 

So why do you care? Well, it means a couple megabytes of source code 
(nearly 60,000 lines) are going into CVS all across the tree -- we have 
a kit, add-ons, a prefs app, BeMail, etc. Which means that if you're on 
the CVS list, this is going to eat your mailbox alive. So you should 
probably unsubscribe, unless for some strange reason you really want to 
have the full MDR source in the form of e-mail. But we're all-knowing, 
so we know you won't want that.
