Summary: Farty $smtp:maildrop design

$smtp looks up a hostname when you set the $maildrop setting, and stores it as an IP. This is a really stupid and potentailly annoying habit. The whole point of hostnames is that you can change the IP behind them without confusing everyone who's using that host.

This is because of the blockage .hostname() causes. With async DNS this can be fixed.
