I tend to agree with Chris B. about oneshot vacation notices. At least
it allow side-stepping the issues he described. It seem to me that
having a vacation notice repeated at some interval is more a function of
the original sender's individual memory refresh rate (which may vary
from time to time :) than anything else.

Is there any strong arguments for having repeated vacation notices?

A nice touch would be if the originator's MUA understood the vacation
notice good enough to politely make a reminder during the vacation
period each time the sender tries to submit another message. I guess
it's only a dream of mine...
