Good idea. Hadn't thought of doing that. Will increase the load a bit
though as a shell will have to be started, whereas currently it is just
exec'd from MailScanner with no startup overhead.

The platform specifics in the conf file will be dealt with by the autoconf
installer that Nick's working on.
