It's unfortunate. Like a lot of other people, I rely utterly on procmail, and nothing else can replace it (mostly 'cos nothing else seems to be able to run random Unix programs and feed them messages, or run Unix programs to decide where messages should go). procmail is horrible, but it's the only mailfilter that really has any of the Unix Way about it... and now it's gone the way of cron, with the distros' independent maintenance its only hope.
