Exim doesn't support UUCP very well. It can handle UUCP, or any other
mechanism you can dream up, as a transport, but doesn't grok bang addresses,
which many UUCP sites still use.

I don't see this as being a problem. Only a tiny minority of people use
UUCP, and there's nothing stopping them using smail---no-one's suggesting we
drop it from the archive, just that we no longer make it the default.
