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).
