Hmm, when I looked at qmail it didn't seem quite so componentable; I don't
know that it would be able to dump undelivered messages into sendmail's
queue for example, or let sendmail still handle local messages. The
philosophy and configuration is just so different from sendmail that it
seemed like to really test it would require a major investment of time.

Yeah, the installation and configuration documentation was almost
unreadable because of it, imho.
