Errr you have those modules... but they're not in seperate rpms are they?
*hides head in shame at being unclear again*  I meant for the rpms to be
"mta agnostic" not the program itself(although having seperate perl modules
makes the rpms mta agnostic a lot closer to the nice side of possible mind
you).  From what you said, I'll just take it for granted you are aware of
the idea and that you've taken it into consideration :)

And I am always happy at writing perl... it's digging into the courier
internals that might make me unhappy... :) Specially between client
