I didn't write that script.  I just provided a patch to it, to get it to
work with different queues.

The patch I provided was for an earlier version.  I've since changed my
copy of check_mailq, only to see that someone else did a lot of changes in
the CVS HEAD version, all of which overwrite mine.

This is in fact what I have on my working copies (but not on the patch I
submitted, and I can't remember why).

Yup.  Sorry about that.
