No, but I just did, and it looks like exactly what I need... except that 
it doesn't support passwd-file auth.  Or am I missing that?

The website documentation on this matter is noticeably outdated.

No, but I think that my indexing problem is that my self-made LDA/MDA is 
not following maildir spec in file naming and construction.  I'd prefer 
to use deliver if I could.

I'll look into this when it's time to get ASMTP going.
