Real mail-readers can make guesses about this anyway.

I'm not sure I like they way IPC is done now anyhow... I'd like to
see almost all IPC done via shared memory with more finely grained
locking of objects where possible. Pipes may have to be used to
wake-up sleeping process/threads.

The reason I'd like to see these changes made it to get greater
scalability on the networking side of things for large MP boxes,
obviously, this isn't going to be possible without making
considerable changes so I think it best deferred until 1.3.x.
