In general, I agree, with caveats:

 * If we do this, Postfix should be in ship.

 * I would support the selection of a known, proven, applicable tool (which
   we don't have) straight away - but I don't believe we should be writing
   software to faciliate this kind of change at this stage of the release

That said, if a tool to do this was packaged and tested before UVF, it might
be acceptable.
