IIRC, the only developer of any of the MTAs which has made any public criticism
of the approach used by MailScanner is Wietse Venema, author of Postfix.

His objections were quite similar to those off the webmin list.

Postfix aside, I'm not so sure one can argue that sendmail's queues are
undocumented. Particularly when all MS is doing is moving mail from one queue to
another, with modifications to the data portion (df*) and not the queue
information (qf*).
