Since the context was a desire to

You're right. At present, updating sequences is rcvstore's only
advantage over using procmail's mh folder ability. When Richard
finishes the nmh file locking though, using rcvstore will be good to
prevent any possible problems due to unlocked maildrops, unless both
procmail and nmh share the same file locking primitives (which would
be good, if possible).
A couple of notes to other messages in this thread:
- for the one who thought that procmail read ~/.mh_profile: I doubt
that it does. You probably have MAILDIR set to your MH directory.
- you can access your Path entry in .mh_profile in your .procmailrc
with "mhparam Path". I use, for example: MAILDIR=`mhparam Path`.
You probably need to update PATH in your .procmailrc to find the MH
