Just my two cents... I would agree on the confusion part of the extra
dovecot-postfix.conf config file... It's an attempt to make the servers
more user friendly, which I'm not sure is needed... if somebody wants to
install/configure/administer a mailserver, that's not really an average
user task, the person should know a little bit what he's doing, it
shouldn't be "too easy" and integrated and out-of-the-box...

It should be clear that you have to mess with config files to set things
up and Ubuntu shouldn't make things easier, at least not on servers.
Desktop is another story. IMHO.
