I am a Postfix weenie.  I don't care what the "default" MTA that comes with
FreeBSD is, but I like that 4.x is better at giving you a choice in the
matter.  If someone wanted to maintain Postfix in the FreeBSD source tree as
an alternative to Sendmail, I don't see what's wrong with that ... same for
Qmail and the like.  The main objection I would seis that you're then bloating
FreeBSD's source tree with every MTA known to man.  The answer?  Jihad?  Or
make EVERY MTA an option for the base system?  Or just do as has been done for
time immemorial and leave Sendmail where it has always been ... :)
