almost impossible.

Imho neither exim nor postfix offers $magicfeature that makes it beat
the other, it is a Emacs vs. vim thingy. (<[🔎] E19cJBn-0001FA-4z@mid.downhill.at.eu.org>)

It boils down to this:

* The postfix package is much older than exim4, especially the
  debconf-stuff and therefore better tested.
* Exim4 is not that different from exim v3 (except for the packaging)
  and lots of Debian users know it and would like to see an MTA that
  they know.
