There are good reasons why these bikesheds are ever recurring,
and experience shows that, finally, these controversial softs
get expelled. Perl has been sacked from FreeBSD-5, Bind8 has been replaced,
DragonflyBSD comes with a new installer, etc. 
Apart from that--would the fact that Postfix comes with the IBM Public 
license be a reason it couldn't be imported to replace sendmail?
