Your argument ignores the fact that most users of Eudora these days
*are* constrained in some way by their employer, school, or service
provider -- mail is not directly delivered to them, after all, so
service limitations at their POP server apply.
In addition, while users may be "free" to use some other digest-burster,
odds are pretty good that they don't have access to one, or at least,
to one that can burst a digest that's been POP-loaded from their
server into a Eudora folder.
