It's far less than that -- it's 1721KiB. We gain almost no space by
dropping it.

I'm somewhat ignorant of Postfix so I could be wrong, but I don't
believe it duplicates the functionality available from Exim.

I've already posted a few examples of things which Exim in FC3 could
handle, to see if someone most Postfix-aware than I can show how to do
the same in Postfix. Nobody's taken that challenge yet.
