LVS is getting much easier to setup and maintain, but a simple round
robin dns system is also quite easy to put together for a perl coder[1].
None of the mail servers need any sort of "LVS" magic, and nothing about
mail is really CPU bound (other than AV), and mail systems nicely
distribute themselves when given the opportunity to.

lightweight and failover is seconds.
