Is hub/spoke or star topology better in a Domino infrastructure?

Currently we are in the process of implementing a Domino infrastructure (for mailing) consisting of 11 servers. What kind of topology would you advise -- hub/spoke or star?
It all depends on your network. For replication, I always say "hub/spoke" because it offers you the most control and consistency. For mail routing, if you have the bandwidth, put everyone in the same Domino Named Network and let them route in a "star" pattern -- it offers the most flexibility. Remember, mail and replication topologies are separate entities.
