Excellent development! Glad to see my idea coming to fruition. Thanks.
I see you are now up to 4.75.5 . I've just installed it on a test server.
But I suppose it's only really going to reveal its strengths (and possible
issues yet to be shaken down) on a production machine.
Given that I was a chief requester, naturally I feel honour-bound to help
test it. Could you give an indication of your production-level confidence
in the code? How high up the inbound MX-priority-tree should I reasonably
think of installing it at present?
