Sure. The point was that the poster expected tcpwrapper to take and 
process the connection and not sendmail. But this could only happen if 
sendmail were not running as a standalone daemon and tcpd were responsible 
for port 25 via inetd. Support for libwrap just means that sendmail can 
make use of it while *it* is processing the mail.
