	For a 660 mailbox with gid==mail, a sgid mail delivery agent

	suid 0 delivery agents were deemed insecure.

 Jaldhar> 2.  Is that the only supported configuration?

	At the moment, I think so. There have historically been
 problems with MTA's with bugs, you know. And since we have several
 supported MTA's in Debian, we have to consider all of them while
 determining policy.
