And causes problems for scripts people run, general expectations, and
the fact that pretty much everyone but the exim maintainers would prefer
'exim', which would be in-line with every other package that uses a
username in Debian, near as I can tell.

Sorry, the argument doesn't go both ways- there *are* problems w/
a username of 'Debian-exim', the many bugs you see filed about it bear
this out.  Are there bugs filed the other way?  Do you have some
justification for beliveing their would be?
