deliver uses separate config parsing code. Looks like all boolean
settings which have "yes" default are "no" as default in deliver. I'll
fix it today by adding more kludges.. Hopefully v2.0 will come soon with
its unified config parsing code. :)

And cache isn't updated either. These are because hard linking can be
done without actually reading the mail contents. I won't fix this for
v1.1, but I updated the documentation.

I'm not sure what the best final solution to this is though. There could
of course be a special deliver-check when the reading is done, but COPY
command has the same problem. Should it read the files or not? If the
file contents are already in memory it would be a good idea to read them
and update cache, but otherwise not. I guess mincore() is the only
potential way to check that, but mmaping the file only to check that is
probably more trouble than worth.
