That's where I was a little confused (kirk?  Insight, clarification?) 
because I thought that line would have it pass the message to another 
queue on port 10023 of the localhost, like the way Amavis runs.  I 
didn't know if that meant it would be running three postfix queues now 
or if it is just a misunderstanding on my part.
