Just wanted to give anyone considering using qmail a chance to read what
he said again because Craig nailed it.  I'm in the process of migrating
a large mail system from qmail to postfix.  I can't tell you how much I
hate qmail.  Like Craig said, it's like working with a
proprietary/commercial product -- it controls what you do, not the other
way around.
