[ Sendmail-8.13+ can select milter per listening socket ]
Is it possible to make MIMEDefang support multiple milters/"filter scripts"?

In many "spam/virus gateways" it would make sense to use three separate
scripts for:
* mail from Internet
* mail from intranet (internal organization's network)
* mail from loopback (locally submitted mail)

I *know* single filter script can deliver it but using separate filter
scripts would make filtering scripts "cleaner", easier to analyze and
easier to use "out of the box" scripts for *some* tasks (mainly loopback
and intranet filtering).
