If people don't like postfix being pulled in by mdadm, they can choose another MTA, including exim4. This is an improvement over the current situation, which might pull in citadel-server instead. Anyway, if this is what keeps the update from entering 5.0.2, I'll obviously fix it. Time to attack this ridiculous exim4 default choice.
