I'm on the fence about that particular thing.  What do others think?

It occurs to me that the days of trying multiple servers in a MUA have
mostly disappeared; other MUAs I'm familiar with only permit one
server to be configured and redundancy is handled via DNS.

Ummm ... no?  Just passing back the name of the server chosen by rclient
would be sufficient, I think, and a lot easier.
