I suspect we just disagree about the default.  As I've mentioned, I'd
favor arranging things so that mail loss is less likely by default,
even if doing so might introduce a few scond delay.  Of course we'd
also need to provide good documentation for the alternative setting
for those systems and people for whom the delay is a problem.

However, I also got the impression from the current disussion that we
might have other alternatives now.  For example, are (most) MTAs
better about queueing now, and can emacs itself handle queueing, and
if either of these things is true, then can we arrange for
alternatives that satisfy (nearly) everyone now?
