Apparently lennartwware-infested linux distros no longer require MTA,
presumably because smtp is implemented inside systemd now. I'm not sure
the "extra complexity" argument holds, though.

Before this, cron needed an MTA and stock maintenance stuff like log
rotation ran from crontab. So there was more complexity in getting one
set up without a local MTA, than in setting up postfix.
