Oh, absolutely, the standalone script is a wonderful idea.

Yesterday I tried to upgrade to zope.sendmail 3.7.1 in an app that's
currently based on Zope 3.4 KGS.  I had to give up after two hours of
fighting explicit and implicit compatibility problems and upgrading most
of the version pins.  The zope.component >= 3.8.0 requirement is deadly.

My motivation to have an alternative fix that could be backported to
something compatible with Zope 3.4 KGS is now much higher.
