I agree. Any of the daemons such as cron, or the jobs that run through
them mail locally by default and in most desktop/laptop style of use
that would never be changed. So to have a full blown MTA for local
delivery is overkill for a vast majority of situations. I filed a bug
[1] against cronie for OLPC when it started pulling in exim because I
think it was basically first on the list to provide
/usr/sbin/sendmail. It was mentioned in the bug that MTAs that can do
local delivery and other local delivery agents (procmail?) should
provide mail(local) and then those sort of apps Require it rather than
the explicit sendmail binary. I'm not sure how that deals with the
exim style first in the list though. Anyone who works out that they
want the mail delivered elsewhere should be able to work out how to
install a full MTA.
