Well well, there it is... The init script supplied by the "baruwa repo
version" of mailscanner isn't the same as the one provided by
mailscanner.info. Just to be sure, I've DL'd the same version from
both, extracred (rpm2cpio mailsc*.rpm | cpio -i -d) both, and done
some looking and some diffs.
I'm not saying the baruwa one is bad, just that it is different and
hence might suffer from less exposure than the MailScanner one. I'm
sure the baruwa maintainer has a good reason for the change.
Question becomes... what else differs between the packages? I'll do
some further diffs and  let you know.
