No real reason? Only one package can listen in on port 25, and
only one package may be linked to /usr/lib/sendmail. Now the latter
may be handled by using diversions/alternatives, but I fail to see
how the former can be handled. (similar arguments for NNTP servers)
Seems like there are *real* reasons. There may be partial work
arounds, but the conflict does seem reasonable.
