Should the wiki become more distro-specific? I don't know, but I've
tried to be very general in what I've written so far.... Keep any
nitgritty details in a "notes" section or so... After all, everything
about anything from MTA to MailScanner to AVs etc etc are pretty much
the same on any *nix system. Some things need special mention, or a
specific section, but do we really want 32 different "How to install
MS on <insert fav OS/distro variant>?
