Hi,

I suggest this renaming because these subpackages are just lookup-backends
(not scripts, utils etc...)

lsearch, dsearch, passwd - are file-based lookups. If I use sql database as
storage I don't need those lookups at all.
So I propose this ability as an option (install exim-server instead of exim)

Other distros usually have a monolitic exim package.
A quick search in ubuntu I see exim4-base, exim4-config, and 2 varians of
install: exim4-light & exim4-heavy
