Initially, I won't be doing that, since I think that Dan is much more likely 
to approve an un-tweaked binary package.

I will do the denymail patch as either an option in the postinstall, or as a 
package qmail-src-denymail that depends on qmail-src.

These are split between /usr/bin/ and /usr/sbin/

The way it's set up at present /var/qmail/control is renamed to /etc/qmail, 
and /var/qmail/{alias,users} are left where they are.

I suppose this is wrong and `users' should also be under /etc, since it 
contains configuration files.  Opinions ?

What about alias ?  This is a non-login user's home directory, so where should 
it go ?

Whatever happens, I'll create symbolic links in /var/qmail to make it look 
like a normal qmail setup, so as not to confuse existing qmail users.

Cheers, Phil.
