I know one this has been something that's been batted around a few times now. Last I recall the developer (and I'm sorry, I can't remember his name off of the top of my head) was working on some custom modifications to vdelivermail. Unfortunately what is required is fairly complex. The pipe method while functional is potentially dangerous. Especially when you start considering nesting them. If something breaks in the middle, your mail is lost due to how error codes are handled between pipes. I think he was working with the actual file descriptors being passed....but I'll admit my memory is fuzzy, and it got beyond my understanding near the end.
Just search the archives. The full thread should be there.
