  Heh.

  I eat sendmail rulesets for breakfast. ;-)

  Never saw anyone use 'inflict' when talking about sendmail conf
files.  But I guess that's appropos.  The best description I've heard of
them is that they look like line noise.

  Oh, and 'quality' may be overstating it a bit.  I've seen core
sendmail developers mention things like sendmail being full of hacks
(that's ugly hacks, not cool hacks).  SendmailX is rewritten from the
ground up, with lessons learned in mind.  We'll have to wait and see how
well that takes off.
