It shouldn't be too difficult to insert your custom into the access file and
run makemap. But I seem to remember some performance problems with some MTA's
and large access files. Sendmail seemed to be a big offender, and maybe Exim (
again, my over 40 year old brain cells are having a hiccup, soo please no
flames!). It has been a long time, and maybe those problems are resolved.
