When I was trying, unsuccessfully, to install OpenProtect, one of the
hurdles I ran into was the lack of qmail support in
/etc/rc.d/init.d/MailScanner.  It occurred to me that I could rewrite
the file so it was more modular, something along the lines of:

	if [ -f /usr/lib/MailScanner/startup/$INCOMING_MTA ]
		source /usr/lib/MailScanner/startup/$INCOMING_MTA

In other words, read in a script that defines shell subroutines to
start, stop, restart, and give the status of the incoming and outgoing
MTAs.  (You'd have two MTAs in split systems where you use something
like qpsmtpd for incoming mail with a Postfix or qmail delivery queue.)
