As promised, I just spent a few hours on a first pass of smmapd 
(sendmail socket map daemon) and committed it to CVS (2.2).  If someone 
want to use it for 2.1, it should port fairly easily.

Currently it ignores the map name, and verifies that the mailbox exists, 
is postable and is under quota, using the same verify_user() function 
used by lmtpd.  If the protocol is extended to include the message size 
and authenticated user (perhaps with SIZE= and AUTH= optional args), the 
verify_user() function already handles this.

I'll write up a manpage and some other docs shortly.
