Yes, I was just pointing out that calling the user agent `sendmail' is
likely to be a source of confusion, especially as `ssmtp' is usually a
sendmail substitute, not a /bin/mail substitute...

[By the way, the POSIX name of the basic mail user agent is `mailx',
so /usr/bin/mailx might be a better default for the mailer.]
