Eh =) I wonder what the performance impact will be. But i like the idea.
It really is a pain the some are glued to sendmail currently, to have just
this working, i think some would have moved to Exim for example instead if
the splitting was possible.

Would also be cool to just be able to split with a ruleset... in my case i
would only split for the local domains...

I diont know if anyone set it up like that in sendmail yet, currently i am
splitting all but thats a real waste of processing power...
