So I see. It's a simple wrapper that just integrates Catalyst config files, and that
suits by purpose. But trying to figure out how to use it I find the underlying stuff is
Reading the page for Catalyst::Helper::Model::Email, and assuming that a ')' keeps getting
lost, it's just a simple to use but you look up an object via Model first. What is the
benefit of that? I suppose you can have more than one configuration pre-set, but I don't
see that happening. Is there some other advantage or conceptional purpose for making a
"feature" or "content sink" or "side effect call" presented as a Model?

I like being able to get a return result so I know it was sent!
If that is not possible on a real server, is there some module already that does this?
Hmm, maybe it depends on the mailer used? Postfix just queues the incoming message
anyway! Why am I needing to duplicate what it already does? Would another queue process
in front of it be less likely to get stuck?
