Well, to be fair, sendmail has only supported it in a public release for
2-3 weeks. :)
Sure, it's been in the beta code for a while (and 8.10 is still in beta),
but sendmail supporting it is a new (albeit welcome) change.
There are other MTA's that Dean could long ago installed that implemented
SMTP-AUTH before sendmail got around to it, though, so his argument is
still pretty moot.
