	Why should it be owned by the MTA? I have machines for which
 there is no local MTA, but mail user agents talk smtp directly to a
 smart host machine. In that case, my MUA creates the file as needed. 

	Emacs uses this file, so it could own it too (emacs should not
 depend on a MTA). mailagent uses and creates the file as needed. 

	Packages that use it should test and cerate it as required.
