I checked with roundup-devel, and Richard Jones says he would be willing 
to include a patch against the current installation document.

My question here is whether the proposed addition to README.Debian for 
roundup requires drastic changes to make it into something suitable for a 
generic Exim user.

Could I just say something like the enclosed snippets should be put in the 
sections for (correspondingly) macros, router, transport?

I don't think there is anything Debian specific about the snippets 
themselves, just about the way they are included in the config, right?

Thanks.                                                         Faheem,

Yes and yes.

If it's "too long" we can split it out into a separate file. Too long 
would be > a couple of hundred lines, I
suppose. There's no hard rule.
