Consistency.  I am old and cumbered. I still use a foxpro varient of dbase   But I can 
search files with foxpro that are 30 years old.  Same with pop-3, though I made what 
may have been a mistake by switching from Thunderbird to Kmail many years back.  
I am hoping that kmail gets fixed. It did pop-3 great under debian jessie.
