Don't know about TheSchwartz (btw. what a stupid name), but MTAs have
their own message queues, so no need for another one.
SMTPing to localhost usually doesn't make much sence - it is slow and as
you mentioned already it causes trouble when the daemon is down or slow.
So either you want to do queueing overhead, dns resolving and SMTPing to
the *remote* host yourself or you simply open(MAILER,"|sendmail @args").
