I was just about to grab the port, deprecate and set two months
expiration date.

Now that you're maintaining it I seek you to please let this
unmaintained unclean code from our FreeBSD ports world and deprecate it.

The code is unmaintainable, hasn't seen maintenance in a decade,
is hard to use properly because of its fall-through "error handling"
(actually nonhandling) behaviour, and should finally disappear.

Please add

DEPRECATED=		use mail/maildrop instead

maildrop (courier's filtering agent) has been around for nearly as long
and works well.

Thank you.
