Except it changes the default for everyone to something with less
functionality, which I'm fairly sure we don't want to do after feature
freeze. Notably, ssmtp won't queue if you're offline, if I'm reading
the docs right.)

(Honestly, if we're going to move an MTA from base to core, I'd suggest
we should just do s/sendmail/postfix/, and let those who need less
change it.)
