I wish I could, but I've never seen it.  AFAIR, David Champion was
going to send it to me, but I don't think I ever actually go it.  If
you did David and I just lost it, then I apologize!  Please resend.

I gave up Sendmail hacking years ago, and that one simple act lead to
the loosening of my restraints, the toning down of my medication, and
my eventual release back into the World of the Shiny Happy People.
Even the bruise on my forehead eventually healed.

IOW, Sendmail hackers, please send help.  Between Fil and myself, I
think we've got Postfix covered, and I'm ecstatic that Nigel is here
to help with Exim, but I really need help from you folks to provide
good solutions for Sendmail, Qmail, and any other popular MTA.
