newaliases and mailq are currently hard links to sendmail. I'm going
to make them symlinks, so that they don't have to be touched any
more. The only link that will get changed is /usr/sbin/sendmail, which 
will point to sendmail, postfix, or the other sendmail replacement of
your choice.

Look at how things work now. It might make it clearer to you.
