It would work with anything else that uses the qmail-queue protocol, but
there are no other implementations of that particular protocol that I'm
aware of. (It's a simple and straightforward protocol.)
What influence that has on your point, I don't know. Note that this
program doesn't link with or directly combine with qmail; it talks to it
via a pipe. That being said, it's probably not useful to a user of Debian
who isn't also using qmail, so maybe contrib would be the best location.
There's no problem with licensing it GPL so far as I can see, though.
