And I find that procmail is not pwerful enough for my mail
filtering needs, and I choose mailagent. I think that deliver has
worked flawlessly for me for many moons, and I do not want procmail

But these are just opinions.
They will vary.
What we need are options.
We should have both, and let sendmail depend on a virtual
package, and people may make their own choices.
