How do you know it's *just* procmail and deliver?  For that matter, if
qmail ever got packaged and wanted to use procmail and/or deliver for
local delivery, they'll need to be updated to check /etc/init.d/qmail
for how qmail is invoked.

I would note that the scripts might be better expressed as (for


exec /usr/bin/procmail -Y -a "$2" -d "$3"
