No, there isn't. The reason is because we have to write a whole bunch
of code to interact with each MTA, and we have plenty of other things
to do besides that.

Not that I wouldn't do it for qmail -- in fact if it looks relatively
easy I might well consider it. But Julian originally wrote mailscanner
to work with sendmail because that's what he uses, and what most people
use. I added the Exim bits because that's what I use. Someone else has
written Postfix bits (which we are now adding in) because that's what
they use.
