Since Hugo wants to keep a "hands on" approach, I guess it isn't necessary. 
But maybe others would like it.

I'm moving my servers exclusively to CentOS 5 by the end of the year, so I 
will probably use Hugo's repo for now. It may only save me 10 minutes or so, 
but 10 more minutes free is a good thing IMHO.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
