Now that we have the means to start writing modules for smtpd should we 
create a modules directory?  Something like:

	mod_smtpd_rbl : "RBL" (DNSBL/RHSBL) support to mod_smtpd
      mod_smtp_access_db : Add sendmail access.db type support
      mod_smtp_access_dbi : Add sendmail access.db type support via SQL


	or should this be a skeleton auth modules that needs plugins:

	mod_smtpd_auth : supports plain, login, cram_md5, digest_md5
	mod_smtpd_auth_pwd : add /etc/passwd auth support for plain and login
	mod_smtpd_auth_db : add db auth support for all auth
	mod_smtpd_auth_dbi : add SQL auth support for all auth

	mod_smtpd_load : Allow temp error if load to high on the server

How hard is adding STARTTLS support going to be?  Is this something 
that is going to require more internal changes?

Is there a way to add more options to the EHLO response (an example)?
