Net::Milter

This project includes a modified copy of Net::Milter which is imported into the Mail::Milter::Authentication::Net::Milter namespace.

The included module has been modified to support all of the features required by Authentication Milter.

If these required features are ever merged back into Net::Milter then we may just use it instead, however at this point the modified version does the job.
