I've revisited this and implemented everything that's necessary to
enable mail submissions, but I ran out of time making it actually
and properly work. If someone wants to take a shot, please pass me
an SSH identity and I can let you log in.

There are still some problems related to parsing e-mail, but most
complexity comes from the fact that the machine cannot actually
receive mail directly, but mail must be relayed from
a.mx.madduck.net. This works, and mail you send to
submit@dpn.debian.net should now get spamchecked and eventually
arrives at .procmailrc of the user running this, but error handling
still needs attention.

Remember that the site is proof-of-concept of the workflow detailed
at http://dpn.debian.net/workflow/. In particular, I won't have time
to administer the ikiwiki instance, and there are probably better
tools out there to implement a publishing workflow, including Plone,
something based on Django or Turbogears, or maybe Wordpress.
