This functionality was not added into qmail as a default due to reasons
I'm not familiar with. qmail in its natural state is a pretty minimal
MTA, but it's also secure, which is something sendmail can't boast.
qmail does have the fastforward addon which enables the use of
/etc/aliases. However, /etc/aliases (and its companion,
/etc/virtuserable) is pretty redundant when compared to
the 'dot-qmail' files that are the natural qmail redirection files.
I'm curious how many of the 'sendmail-isms' are supported by postfix.
