Yeah, Exim3 was somewhat arcane, but has now been obsolete for a number
of years. Exim4 is a lot more logical in its configuration and has
relatively few parentheses unless you're trying to do something evil
with it. :)

If course, if you _like_ it weird, you can do that too....
http://david.woodhou.se/eximconf/include/routers-ses or
http://david.woodhou.se/eximconf/include/acl-helo-csv being examples of
what you can do if you just want to be silly about it and do stuff
purely in Exim configuration rather than falling back to hacking it up
in C like normal people might.
