A little of both, I think :)

I had a look at this patch with Itamar today.  We like where you're 
going, but here are a few issues:

1. it's not backwards compatible.  DocmaServer uses its own sendEmail, 
which depends on the sentEmail callback's signature.

I personally would like to see Twisted's sendEmail deprecated and 
replaced with an admonishment to use the 'email' module ;), so it would 
be nice if you could re-implement sendEmail in terms of your  MIME-less 
'sendmail' function.

2. Those change to LineReceiver made no sense to us.  Care to explain?

3. What's up with the SMTP logger?  and logging every line in the 
client?  This is duplicated generic code, and should probably be 
refactored into someplace more appropriate, like twisted.python.log.

This is just from a cursory look-over; the main issue is #1.  Thanks 
for the patch!
