Ah. Great that you found it (all MTA, and OT, but still.... One could
well think the ones over at the PF list would've been able to see

often, you could try every 10 or 15 seconds or similar... Would mean
approximately 25 deliveries in every chunk. But if the system doesn't
suffer too much from the queue scans... well, every other second it
