Is the version that is proposed to be packaged patched to reject mail at
the SMTP level for unknown users rather than accept mail and bounce it
later?  qmail in its default operational mode is a spam reflector and
hence broken by design, and shouldn't be accepted into Debian.  However,
perhaps this has been fixed by the community since djb's last release?
