Few *generally known* security holes.

One reason sendmail is viewed as such a mess of security holes is that
it has over half the net using it, so it's got everyone and hir dog in
the cracker community scrutinizing it for holes.  I don't for a moment
doubt that if exim or qmail or zmailer or any of the others were to be
used comparably widely, holes would quickly be found.
