Why do you need it to be a .so file?  The interface is forking and
execing /usr/sbin/sendmail; no need to encapsulating them in a redundant
layer that noone is currently using.

A libmapi library might sense to simplify Windows porting, but Windows
APIs tend to suck elephants through an itty bitty straw, so I don't know
if we want to do that.
