Sure, but with limited time and no-one pushing the use of
$mail-transport-agent, it seem like a risky aveny to use if you want
this fixed in Squeeze.

After all, there are very few packages that need to relate to the
running MTA.  Most just need a working mailx or sendmail
implementation on disk.  So there are more important issues to push
regarding the boot system, and I am trying to push things in priority
order within the limits of my little spare time. :)

Happy hacking,
