*laugh* yeah, I'm one of those who doesn't think twice about hacking sendmail.cf rulesets if I need to, and saving it as a local ruleset in an mc file for later m4 macros later. 

At some point around 1997 I couldn't sleep because of a sendmail problem I was having, and I was beating my head over the bat book, fell asleep and was dreaming in .cf, and I woke up practically screaming "I got it!", my girlfriend at the time was annoyed, but I was excited as sendmail.cf finally clicked for me.

I went, wrote the ruleset (which at the time was a dnsbl rule before dnsbl rules were written already), tested it on a phony dnsbl on my own nameserver, and fell right to sleep, feeling accomplished, learning something, and becoming one of the few people in the world who knows sendmail.cf like instinct now.
