"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Breathing room.

An addendum... I forgot to make a seperate /var/mail partition for mailspools as I've gotten used to delivering to Maildir in the user home directories. But I've gotten in the habit, lately, of having spillover drive space mounted to /vol/scratch for just such occurrances.

# umount /vol/scratch
# postfix stop
# mv /var/mail /var/mail.foo
# mkdir /var/mail
# disklabel -E /dev/wd0c

Kill the scratch partition, add /var/mail, re-add /vol/scratch...

# newfs /dev/wd0{$x}
# newfs /dev/wd0{$y}
# mount /vol/scratch
# mount /var/mail
# mv /var/mail.foo/* /var/mail
# rm -r /var/mail.foo
# vi /etc/fstab

Yay.
