written in Rust, and replacing the pvemailforward binary in PVE. Can
be used in PVE and PBS as well as in a mixed installations of the two.

To make reading the config files work, it is a setuid binary owned by
root, but it sets the effective UID to the real UID after reading the
configs, so parsing and sendmail invocation happen with lower
privileges again (well, except if the binary was called by root

The .forward file is updated during postinst as currently done in
pve-manager. proxmox-mail-forward's postinst will not do anything
when detecting a pvemailforward entry. Instead pve-manager is
responsible for the switchover in PVE.

proxmox-mail-forward needs a depenency bump for proxmox-section-config
for the functionality added by the first patch.

proxmox-backup recommends proxmox-mail-forward (I felt a Recommends
is more fitting, but feel free to change it) and pve-manager depends
on proxmox-mail-forward are part of the series.
