Steve,

Your call but it may not be worth adding a new setting.
I've already patched it out of my system, and if I'm the only one who
cares then I'd say don't worry about it.  I am aware of a DoS attack but
all senders are locked tight so I feel mitigation is sufficient. In fact
I nearly DoS-attacked myself before restricting the recovery to at most
1 process. :)

The store-and-forward piece will be excellent. It will solve at least a
couple of issues for me: recovery and also forwarding from a DMZ machine
to an internal server which will then forward to an independent
collector.

Thx,
LCB.
