Well, I have too agree with you that almost all my personal examples are
based on the "hard to migrate from" argument.

The usage surveys I could find[0][1][2] have somewhat conflicting usage
patterns, but all indicate Qmail is not the most used MTA out there.

Please note that I don't personally like Qmail either, but I still think
we should (but don't *have* to) provide it, if possible (I don't know
what's the outcome of the "putting it in public domain" story).
