I think vintage glues would've worked fine for M&T, also - perhaps not if they get wet, but presuming you're making furniture for indoors in a climate controlled area, there should be no problem. If there was, you could just re-glue.

I agree with sgian, outdoors, I would do it for redundancy and mechanical lock.

Indoors, I don't like to see endgrain, so it's out. I haven't made any hidden m&T, which I'm assuming is what chris is talking about, and no through wedged even though that's trendy in a last 20 years sort of way (endgrain thing again). I'd rather repair an M&T than potentially destroy a piece to get at a edged M&T that's wobbling.
