I had no idea that ssmtp was under development somewhere else-- had I
known, I might've saved myself the time of rewriting this one. I can't
get a response from their ftp server at the moment, but I'll have to

Sorry, I can't commit to investigating bug reports, keeping up with
development, and the other things I'd feel responsible for as the
