greylisting and dccproc

Does anyone use dccproc during the SMTP transaction to reject spam?

I ask because I've finished adding greylisting to dccm and dccifd.
I've punted on dccproc because dccproc does not currently know
the SMTP envelope RCPT_TO value(s).  
If I changed it to understand `dccproc -G rcpt1 -G rcpt2 ...` as
a request to greylist based on those recipient addresses, it could
exit() with EX_TEMPFAIL from sysexits.h.

I suspect no one is using dccproc during the SMTP transaction.
Dccifd is the preferred mechanism.
