Isn't subjectivity wonderful? :]

I've used sendmail, postfix, and qmail ... they're all useful for
certain things. I'm comfortable with sendmail (having close contacts
with sendmail developers also makes my life easier in "hmm, how do I
do X?" situations) *shrug* YMMV, etc. I'm certainly not an evangelist

The mimedefang author has talked about venturing into MTA-agnosticism,
so that may happen someday. Mimedefang is mostly perl, so I guess
porting the sanitizer would involve moving the procmail configuration
bits into perl.
