One thing springs to mind - I think "sendmail" support is more important
than you give it credit.

What if you've got an alert rule in rsyslog to email you when your
network link fails - but your SMTP server is at the other end of the
link? :-) If you used sendmail - you get requeuing and retrying for free
- I don't think you want to have to add that to your SMTP support...

Also every Unix box in creation comes with a "sendmail-like" MTA
installed, and everyone needs to configure it anyway to get cronjob
reports, etc. Basically it's always there and almost always configured
ready to go anyway.
