Don't tell me, tell Dan Berstein (happy hunting):

I know what the Postfix configuration looks like, I've been over it a
countless number of times. I know it is simple, even to parse, but there
is still no real comparision to qmail's configuration. qmail has several
settings that come "one setting per file". IIRC the other settings go "one
per line", no comments, no spaces, no quotation marks.

I'm not saying the Postfix configuration is not as good or even complex.
qmail's configuration is just easier to read and write if both are done be
an automation, rather than a human.
