Do you really think?  OK, there's precious little in the way of useful
comments, and Dan's avoidance of the standard library means there's a
bit more to understand, but otherwise the code is clean and easy to
follow.

Compared to other MTAs I've hacked on (sendmail and PP), qmail's source
is a paragon of lucidity.
