Sendmail was written back in the days of wooden computers and iron
programmers and uses a macro language configuration technique designed
to be efficient for the computer.  Postfix was what you get if you
start over with the idea of making it easier for the humans.   But,
that part only matters if you need to configure it to do something
that no one has ever done before.  Otherwise you just re-use an
existing setup.
