Correct me if I am wrong, but I think those do not do queueing,
which will break the default assumption that I've seen almost
everywhere, which is that when sendmail returns, your email is
getting delivered, or you'll get a DSN.

Nullmailer is not LSB-compliant.

And neither of the small ones handle mail to root on the local
system (cron, apticron, logcheck, etc.) in an acceptable manner,
I think.
