	This is precisely the same sort of thing that we recommend for 
people who are running postfix, and is discussed in the FAQ.  If this 
isn't mentioned in the FAQ for people using sendmail, then what we 
should probably do is add this as part of a separate generic MTA 
performance enhancement page and then point all the MTA-specific 
pages to that one, as well as adding their own particular details.
