will do, thank you veera.

i just simply converted the entirety of exim4, globally, to Maildir, because i
do not permit (or use) exim4 for local mail.  this is the only exception.

the server does not have *any* local mailboxes except the public-inbox one (in
the current experimental setup).

it is the first time, ever, since 2008 that i have allowed exim4 to have "local
mail delivery".

ok so we should probably retire libre-riscv-dev and use new list names (on the
new domain).  that makes life a lot easier.
