Looks like Peter got the sgml sources pretty well cleaned up, but
didn't touch the FAQs.

The attached patch replaces some more references to "postmaster" in
the FAQs.  Per Tom's guidance, I only replaced those references where
I felt a distinction between the postmaster and its children wasn't
important to the reader.

Thanks for your time,
