We ran into a problem doing the LSPP evaluation with regards to email. Of all 
the packages listed, the only one that really mattered for security was cron. 
So, what we did was patched cron to be able to take an argument, -m, to 
define the mail delivery agent. It could be a shell script, procmail, or 
anything you wanted to take the cron output and move it into the local spool 
dir. Would using this solve the problems being debated here?  (And since cron 
can take a mail agent argument, it should not have a hard requirement for 
sendmail.)
