Era, I appreciate what you're saying but I think it's a case of
over-engineering. If by some chance somebody ends up in TRASHCAN,
nothing is really lost. Making it more specific defeats the concept
of keeping things simple. I do not send mail to /dev/null.
Polished up a bit more (excluding that \>|$ and \. stuff), a lockfile,
and a line allowing mail from a gentleman at stanr(_at_)sunspot(_dot_)(_dot_)
If anyone wants to make things more complicated, be my guest. :-)
