I know.

I should note that my current clients, Critical Path, base their
products atop QMail.

Yeah, he's toasted me a couple times, and I've beaten him back with
cold hard documented statistics a couple times.  Asides from the
fact that Dan never declares truces, I have.

The rest is mostly written for the rest of the list (as versus
people who know Dan):

QMail is an absolutely excellent product, far above the norm in its
field.  It is fast, efficient, secure, well designed, has a
vanishingly small history of security concerns, is of good design
etc.  It is a highly recommendable product as well (tho perhaps not
as from the gods).  The problem is that Postfix is arguably just as
good and wonderful for all the same resons, and just as
recommendable -- and if you go with Postfix you don't have to put up
with Dan Bernstein in any fashion.

Them's the breaks.  YMMV yada yada.
