This would be the best solution, but deliver and procmail have different
command-line options. sendmail.cf reads:
A=deliver -r $g $u
for deliver, and
A=procmail -Y -a $h -d $u
Should deliver/procmail postinst change sendmail configuration
automatically? Should deliver/procmail postinst force a sendmail
reconfigure? If we do this, why not for the other MTAs?
Maybe we need a new (real, not virtual) package "mda-base" to manage
all this? [ I had some ideas about this, see bug #11655 ].
