The perl code can't get at the macros until we have a COMMANDS file.
We can't have a COMMANDS file until we have a working directory.
We don't have a working directory until we have a Sendmail queue ID,
and we don't have a Sendmail queue ID until the MAIL command.

That's a long-winded way of saying MIMEDefang will never support
macros before filter_sender.

If you call read_commands_file from filter_sender, you will have all
the macros you need.  Use the -a option to pass the needed macro.
