Postfix has to be in base because base needs to have mail. We could
conceivably replace postfix in base with something simpler, but
someone would have to write it and that's so far not been worth
anyone's time.

bind should be kicked out; there's no reason other than historical
tradition to have it in base, and it's a maintenance hassle both for
us and for sysadmins.
