Does this check whether the procmail executable exists on every mail delivery?
is that going to slow the whole thing down a bit. Otherwise I think this is a

Another possiblity would be to stick the check in the exim config script,

Would you like to use procmail are your MTA [n/Y]?

You could check if it the procmail executable is installed, but exim might be
configured before procmail is installed.
