I assume you mean that it doesn't require configuration for local 
delivery.  If it tries to handle full email addresses by delivering 
directly to the final-destination MTA by default, it will fail in many 
cases because the user's IP address will not correspond to a "trusted" MTA.

My actual choice was a "4A" - fix msec rather than nail.  But, as I 
said, I'm OK with 3.  I put MTAs on all of my systems anyway.

Not unless it can be done in C or Java :-)
