Another call for improvements

Many thank for all the work you put into an excellent product.

You asked for suggestions so here is mine.

It would be useful if the init script you distribute could look in a 
standard place for local customisations. This would save me merging my 
changes with your script when I upgrade. I customised the scripts to start 
and stop extra services, add additional command line arguments, change the 
behaviour of existing command line arguments and perform some other site 
specific actions.
The local customisation are in an extra file MailScanner.local which the 
main script sources, however I still need to add the hooks  into your 
script when I upgrade.

If you want I could send you my scripts, which show the hooks in the main 
file and how the local customisations work.

  All the best, and thanks again for all your work
