I had a skim of their man pages.  So if one's writing a postproc then
post(8)'s interface has to be implemented?  I wonder if send(1)'s
SYNOPSIS should separate out the arguments.  Those it handles.  Those
that affect its behaviour and also get past to post.  Those it ignores
other than to pass to post.

Cheers, Ralph.
