Sure. And it's probably reasonable to provide a simple (aka "dumb")
default for configuration. [Which is to say: straightforward delivery
mechanism, nothing optimized, no relaying enabled, and if there's no
tcp available then outbound mail won't get delivered.] That way people
who don't want to be bothered with mailer configuration (or who don't
understand the issues) don't need to worry about customizing anything.
