I've got one current additional box on the system, and plan to have
additional soon (laptop, other random boxen).  So there will be some
internal delivery going on.

I also just found this Exim FAQ, which appears to address the question
I'm concerned with:  http://exim.ping.uio.no/FAQ.html#SEC201

Basically, it's this:

  o Rewrite all references to 'karsten' for mail being delivered outside
    the local network, changing them to 'kmself@ix.netcom.com'

  o Don't modify any references to 'karsten' for mail delivered on the
    local host or within the local network.

...I'm getting the impression this isn't the sort of rule Exim likes to
have to deal with.  Is Sendmail a better option?
