VERY bad idea... What is Majordomo supposed to do when Sendmail
refuses the connection because the load is too high, for instance?
Queue the message for later? You've just added a whole new class of
queuing problems to Majordomo...

That could be done already, via the "-m" flag to resend (which allows
you to set optional sendmail arguments).
