That is a good point, and one that I do not think could not be solved
with triggers. So packages that require an MTA (like fcron) really
need to stop while switching MTAs, or they can find themselves
without a sendmail to talk to (and, in the case of fcron, lose
output from jobs).
Thanks. Will think more.
