I understand that, however lmtpproxyd didn't exist in 2.3.x until 2.3.4.
It was there in 2.2 but not in 2.3 until now. Why did they appear now, did
nobody need them in 2.3.3? So my question is, do those binaries act
different depending on how they were called? If that's the case then the
rpms should also ship with the hardlinked files.
