Which is perfectly ok for a package where upstream already is
careful to not break stuff. That doesn't work in general though.
With exim this is possible. It's not the default
MTA of SUSE and
therefore the risk to break 80% of installed and working systems is much
The question is whether users of exim are aware that they rely on a
"second-tier" package. OTOH there is no guarantee that packages that
are in the default install are treated with more care either.
