Exim support in 4.10-1

just a quick question, I'm not sure if this is possible, but I do know it's
how some mail "addons" do it in the debian world...

Wouldn't it be possible to seperate the "mta-specific" code in a module, in
a seperate rpm, and leave the bulk of mailscanner intact, with no
dependancies to a specific mailscanner (I think that may help integration
of mailscanner into new mtas: I'm much interested in a courier-addon, but I
have limited(that is small, not non existant) time to work on all the
issues, if the code was seperate(with an api? does one need an api at this
level?), at least I'd know the extent of my task
