Nope, that's the way it's written.

I use a script at boot time which does:

   .../relaydelay.pl /etc/mail/relaydelay.conf 2>&1 | logger -p 
mail.info -t relaydelay &

so all the output gets logged (this was before anyone wrote the patches 
to do logging from within the perl script) and it runs in background.

Happy relaydelaying. :-)
