Yeah, what Gergo said.  I think that rather than replacing sendmail with a
program that does less, we can just modularize sendmail so that it's not
directly attached to the build.  This way, the immediate goal of allowing
people to drop in a sendmail replacement is there, without removing any of
the existing functionality.

Corecore's very good at what he does, so I do think his replacement
program can be made to cover what the majority of people need from
sendmail (which isn't much), and anyone with greater needs could still
install sendmail.  However, it seems there's an easier method just by
using the existing packaging system.
