There's a big difference between ``add support for other MTAs'' and
``drop support for sendmail.''
It's actually fairly easy to have several MTAs installed at once, each
in its own directory. The active MTA has symlinks into its directory
from /usr/sbin/sendmail and /usr/bin/newaliases and so on. The other
MTAs can have directories mode 700 so that you can safely ignore them.

Tested by fire? Is that like the medieval witch trials? You print out
the source code, crumple it up, tie it to a log, burn it, and decide
based on the smell whether your inkjet needs a new cartridge?
