Exactly.

Pretty much.  :-)  I think might best be a tweak to the spooler, since it
would no longer be getting a notify() from the SMTP handler.  And both James
(the class) and dnsserver would be shared, since they provide services to
all.

I admit that doing that is not my highest priority right now.  We've got a
lot of nice new contributions that need to be merged.  But Stefano and Pier
have raised excellent points, which should be addressed.  If anything, they
validate James' architecture.
