This is not the problem. The problem is to avoid two configuration files
for exim when only a couple of lines are different. It is also hard to
keep the configurations in sync. Imagine, you have 3 or 4, or even more,
configurations for exim, you change a line and then you have to copy the
new configuration 3 or 4 times and change every config file so that the
smarthost entries are not lost.
