How is that a "feature"?  Lack of UUCP is a serious problem for those in a 
situation like me, who depend upon it!  At my location, it is the only 
reasonable mail/news feed available.  I am all for including more packages in 
Debian.  I think it's great there could be more MTAs included with Debian.  
But let's be honest about what we're including please.

On a different note, there has been a lot of criticism over Sendmail's 
configuration file.  I agree that sendmail.cf is a file that I would never 
want to edit, but please be aware that Sendmail includes macros that let you 
write a short, human-readable configuration that can be converted into a 
sendmail.cf file.
