Yes Actually,  I just did that today.  it is very simple though, and
not mailscanner specific.  What it does, is check the mail queue
directories at regular intervals (30 minute cron job in my case) and
email the postmaster when any of the queues get more messages than an
allowed number in them.  The script includes the queue name and the
number of messages in the queue.  I can email it to you if it sounds
like you would like it, it's in perl.
