Could I ask why?  (Several reasons spring to mind, such as:
1/ OpenProtect already does a good job.
2/ Julian likes qmail less than Postfix.
3/ Julian's overworked and doesn't want to take on another MTA
4/ There's no way of adding another MTA to Julian's test setup
5/ qmail's even less compatible with the dual-queue approach than Postfix.
6/ Julian relies on other people to handle extra MTA's and nobody
volunteered to handle qmail.
and so on.)

Unfortunately, it looks like we'll be replacing our sendmail boxes with
ones running qmail.  I'm looking at qpsmtpd to replace the qmail front-end.
