MTA authors don't share this. lost+found is "invisible" for the
application that created the file.
I have yet to meet a distribution which scans lost+found at boot time
and syslogs found files or sends root a mail.
So, effectively, lost+found will NOT be sufficient. Discarding file
names at will is not a good thing.
