WOW Lauris!  We arrived to the same conclussion!

But you were faster than I was :-)

Yes.  Sendmail is one pretty bad thing to handle.

My impression is that we should write a frontend not for the native
/etc/ file (as it can describe anything, from a sendmail
configuration, to a towers-of-hanoi game), but to rather manipulate a
sendmail.config that can only contain keywords for the m4 macros that
sendmail ships with.

And we would only tweak this, and generate the from the
master file.
