That's indeed heavy. As it isn't available as plugin, providing two
postfix packages would be another possibility.
Using 'postfix' and 'postfix-utf8' wouldn't alter existing installations
as 'postfix' and 'postfix-tiny' would, and it fits better into my
understandig of alpine linux.
Anyone has any opinions here?
