I submitted one as a patch a few weeks back - should be in any 2.0 
release after beta5.

Incidently the README.exim is basically a straight dump of

which I am reasonably sure is referenced in the main README files.

I guess I could add a note that exim aliases that invoke a pipe 
transport *must* have a uid associated with them... it defaults to not 
having one because that forces people to think before they unsecure 
their system :-)
However I'd strongly recommend not using aliases anyhow, although their 
might be case for doing so if you are using lots of disparate domains 
without common lists.
