But I'd like to be notified that they still are and when they finished.

You see, this could sound minor, but I had a hell of hour trying to
understand why, or why, clamav-milter didn't work after successful
installation and sendmail restarted (to remind you, sendmail is controlled
by MailScanner, so basically, MailScanner restarted).

I documented to myself to check for existance of sendmail childs next time I
built a mailer, although it would be nice if MailScanner could hadnle such
things itself - would be neater...
