[svlug] procmail (was: Some pretty serious parsing)

FWIW, I have now amended http://linuxmafia.com/faq/Mail/ldas.html to 
add:

1.  Yet more LDAs.  When you reach 32 entries, it's starting to get 
a little excessive, methinks.  So, I highlighted the comment by Nathan
Willis of LWN.net that the most often-recommended alternative to
procmail are Courier's Maildrop and Dovecot's deliver aka 'lda'.

2.  Separating out LMTP implementations from LDAs.

3.  Separating out discussion of the Sieve filtering language.


It's still just primarily a bestiary, i.e., there's little said about
the details and merits of most of the LDAs listed.  Pondering the merits 
and feature sets is left up to the reader.
