while i can't imagine ever justifying having postfix AND exim installed on
the same machine, your argument holds true for other things. for instance,
it's not uncommon to see a machine that has apache running on 80 for
modperl pages, with thttpd or aolserver on 8080 for static content. not to
mention what will happen when we see TUX packaged.
i guess this argument will have to be decided seperatly for each service
that it comes up for. personally, i think the smtpd maintainers would be
waisting there time, since you can't specify a port number in an email
