How would the problem be any greater than it is right now?  In terms of what 
name to use (service, server, or something else) it's exactly the same issue 
as we have at the moment with /var/run/something.pid.

I bet that almost no-one can name both pid files for Sendmail from memory.  If 
they were in /var/run/sendmail there would be no doubt.
