        Understood.  I just wanted to point out the philosophical 
differences from the postfix perspective, and thought that it was 
important that this be made explicit.

        No, 20001005 is the latest snapshot I know of, and appears to be 
what Wietse is running himself:

$ telnet 25
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
220 ESMTP Postfix (Snapshot-20001005)
221 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.

        However, I would not be too surprised if what he was running is 
actually slightly later than this (i.e., another snapshot in 
progress), and it just identifies itself as Snapshot-20001005.

        The machines where I run this code don't strictly need a MySQL 
interface for aliases.  Although we do keep our internal aliases in a 
MySQL database, I do not believe that it is in a format that would be 
suitable for use with postfix, and therefore I'd have to create yet 
another MySQL database that *was* in the proper format.  This would 
likely lead to synchronization problems, etc....
