I notice that the maintainer of msmtp has taken the route suggested
by Gerrit Pape. (Note the package "msmtp-mta").

Another option is the one taken by {x,g,k}dm. There is an
"alternatives"-style setting that chooses the server one wants to run
by default.

One advantage of the former method is that you do not need to
co-ordinate this with other maintainers of similar servers.

One advantage of the latter method is that the users do not get
confused by "one-more-package".
