I like those.  I just had some quality airplane time and was
able to wrap up the addition of "pipe".  It's committed.  I

And an -mts command line option would help with the
migration away from spost, which could then just exec "post
-mts sendmail/pipe".

Is what's already in the send(1) man page sufficient, starting
with "When using SMTP for mail submission?"

That could go in the neutered spost, just before it execs
