It is really not that important which MTA is present.  If somebody
would bring that mythical "simple, small, lightweight, local
delivery" MTA, and "you know where to look for full fledged servers
if you need them", then I would not mind this as an installation
default.  Only that such thing is so far appears to be missing
(or esmtp can play here? I do not know).  Maybe it is not that hard
to expand on an existing stuff but MTAs are famously devious beasts
with serious security implications.
