Any user of a Windows system will already be familiar with the system
mailer.  And even if she isn't, pressing the "Send" button doesn't
require you to be Einstein ;-)

Anyway, we had that value for a long time, and I don't remember any
Windows users complaining.

It is vastly better than a sophisticated, first-class mailer that the
user doesn't know how to set up.

And mind you, we won't be preventing users from reconfiguring to use a
better mailer.  It's just the default, it can be customized.  If we
want, we can provide a command for such a configuration, which will
run the same code that is now in sendmail-query-once.
