There are really two orthogonal things being discussed here: One question is 
whether the default MTA should be a full or proper implementation versus a 
tiny and limited implementation (or -- the latest idea -- none at all).  The 
other is whether, if the full implementation is chosen, it should be Exim or 
Postfix.  It might lead this argument to a clearer conclusion if those two 
issues are treated separately.
