There is one other issue with this.

'The /"phone home"/ code implemented by SnertSoft takes the form of a 
simple email message sent by direct SMTP to our servers. It contains the 
product name & version, library version, IP address, host name, and a 
timestamp (see below 
<http://www.snertsoft.com/license-statement.php#example>).'

Not all the places we'd like to run milters have direct access to the 
internet.  The practical effect is that the milter takes minutes to 
start, and then starts working (I was testing it on a development box 
before going live).

Cheers,

Rob
