What are the advantages of maildir?

How can I switch my current system to use maildir?

Hm...I'd say like the linux kernel-tree there should be a 
development/test version for new features and a release version with 
tested, working features...that there could be bugs in it is 
conceptional...Ant the more a software is tested, the better it will be 
:-), but I don't want to test software on a production server...and I 
don't have a testlab for imap.
