I would like to say that I have successfully converted/convinced more than a
few people of the values of Sendmail and Perl through showing them the cool
stuff you can do with MD.

I love seeing the people who start thinking of things they can do to email
with Perl/Sendmail/MD.  Come to think of it, I should find a jive filter and
auto-attach a jive translation of all emails to every email.  Sure enough, a
quick web search and voila!

The disclaimers alone would be priceless:
