Suggestions welcomed.
how about not running a full MTA on a laptop/client install... at all?
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
It is true, but more to the point, full blown MTA can do local delivery without being started as daemons. So no MTA should be started in the default case.

With default configuration, only exim can deliver directly. Postfix
and sendmail need a daemon running or a cron job to actually deliver
the mail.

But note that (a) the daemon startup can be delayed so as not to impact bootup time and (b) making sleep/hibernate reliable is what laptop users need instead of booting all the time anyway because it is much faster if you can simply close the lid and open it later with all your apps working as you left them.
