With Cyrus and Sendmail combo you can use both cyrus_v1 and cyrus_v2 mailers, 
sice Cyrus 2.1.x has "deliver", but it might become obsolete and we are all 
advised to move to cyrus_v2.

Cyrus v1 uses "deliver" program for delivery, while Cyrus v2 uses LMTP daemon, 
via UNIX and/or TCP socket. I think "deliver" from v2 is just a front-end to 
LMTP submission via socket.

So, use v2.
