Thats exactly all it is like. On cheap nasty setups I've done, with multi 
front ends talking to one backend using milter-ahead type setups. It's 
the EXACT same principle, and uses less than a couple of kilobytes per 
second, thats with well over a million emails a day, so I cant see
how its going to hurt ANYONE.
Except maybe annoy the paranoid daily log reading admins having larger 
logs to sift through :)
