Exim doesn't start a shell (unless explicitly specified) when using the
pipe transport, but there's always a fork&exec, of course, but the
impact is little on modern systems.
There was a little talk a while ago that it would be very cool to have a
LMTP server inside dovecot (just like Cyrus), but I think it'll take a
while until Timo will have time for such things. I thought about doing
it myself, when time permits, as plugin, if this is possible.
