Ahm, Julian, now that I have used the MS debugging feature a few times I 
think being able to grab a single ID may be nice, but not really helpful 
for a production machine. I have to disable at least MS if I want to debug 
(otherwise it would "steal" the queue files) and usually this is not done 
within a few seconds, but takes at least five minutes or more, maybe 
repeatedly. It would be nice if I could specify an alternative queue 
directory, so I can run a MailScanner instance in parallel to the 
production daemon and debug files from that directory while the normal 
sendmail/MS operation isn't affected. I think this would be much more 
helpful than specifying a certain ID.
