Excellent.  Sounds fair enough.

I looked at what I was doing (this is an old install) and found that Bill
Shupp's mega-patch plus chkusr is really all I need.  So I started over
with netqmail and the latest patchsets.  So far all is well under 5.3.30
with the updated qmail, so I'll be giving the upgrade a shot soon.

Looks like I already had that.

Looked at each release from 5.3.30 - 5.4.6 and didn't see anything big
beyond the smtp-auth issue.  Until my db issues are sorted out I'll be
declining on the valias stuff. :)  I have to give PGSQL a shot sometime as
well.  It looks like people have been cleaning that up a bit.
