Would a debconf script for exim3 appeal to anyone?  I wrote one a while
back and gave it to the exim maintainer but it got lost in the noise (it was
pre v4, but I can't remember why it got rejected).  At any rate, it works
well for me.  If people think that exim3 is a good fit for default installs,
I can dust off the config and give to anyone interested.
