"postfix-script" launched master(8) with an instance-specific option
argument, that would be reasonably portable.
You get similar information from "lsof", process environment, "postfix
status", contents of "master.pid" files in each queue directory, ...
postfix logs, ...
So you are not left entirely without means to obtain the instance
to pid mapping. I am not sure the ignored instance option is compelling,
though it would perhaps be somewhat convenient.
