Protocol-specific extensions: SMTP

The protocol that can best be served by this work is SMTP. In fact, this paper started originally being written with only SMTP in mind, but when the author realized other protocols could be vastly benefited with this work, he decided to also include them. SMTP, however, can be doubly benefited from the wrappers, both against DoS attacks and buffer overflows and, as we should soon discuss, spamming attacks.
