Then something else. One can easily envisage installing as
/usr/bin/sendmail something that reads an email, immediately
sends it to a smarthost via SMTP and exits with an error if a problem
happened. No daemon, no local spool.
That would be accessible to _all_ programs whether they are written in
Perl or not.
There is a reason for having standardised interfaces. It is that they
can be implemented in different ways.
