We're averaging roughly 100k pieces of daily mail to postmaster (recent
highs and lows of 150k and 80k respectively) on around 2m pieces of mail
traversing the system.  Of that, maybe 1/4 to 1/3 feeds into cyrus.  On
all systems postmaster is stripped off for separate (non-cyrus) delivery
and fed through procmail scripts and filed appropriately.
