Um, this is definitely not my place, but might I submit that, though I
also vaguely disagree with the /etc/mail/* structure (though for
another reason), it is a policy decision, presumably made by the core,
and one that should be taken up as a policy argument as opposed to a bug?

Anyway, IMHO, you should all be using Postfix instead of sendmail...
and unless I'm mistaken, the reason for an /etc/mail was to allow all
MTAs to store files in a uniform place under NetBSD. That makes a
certain amount of sense, but if I have both qmail and postfix config
files, I maybe want to have them in separate places.
