The initial poster of the question wants to do procmail filtering, so I
think the choice he did is reasonable - if you're piping mails anyway,
deliver is just fine.
I think the comment with LMTP was only to clarify that there are other
means of getting the messages into the system; I don't think it was a
suggestion and I don't think that LMTP is better in this specific case
(in general, I prefer it, though).
