We have lots of "server-like" packages, like postfix, dovecot,
spamassassin, amavisd-new, apache, sshd...

those services be after install. So, spamassassin is disabled, postfix
listens on all IPs (public and localhost), amavisd-new listens only on
localhost, dovecot doesn't listen at all...
Shouldn't we have one general rule for all packages? I know that
postfix, after install, isn't open relay, but wouldn't it be good if it
would listen only on localhost? And, it seams that some services are
started after install, and some are not. Shouldn't we have some rules in
