Well, the part "like" in SMTP-like was used by purpose. It could (and
should) be secured of course (e.g. over SSL and authentication with
user/pass before getting write access). dpkg-sig also uses a SMTP-like
protocol for remote access - secured by running over a ssh, and a lot
of other protocols too.

Ok for you?
