For the hundred millionth time, the right way to do all of this is in the
"everything is a package" approach, which everyone agrees is the right answer,
but no one has turned out code to do yet.

All time spent anywhere other then churning out the code for the that design is
wasted. We don't need another MTA in the default system, some would argue we don't
need the current on we have. We do need a more configurable install and adding
more MTAs isn't going to help.
