Mailman /should/ be able to parse RFC 3464 DSNs accurately, at the very
least to tell whether the notification indicates a permanent failure or
not. If it's not working right, it's a bug.
All the 'magical' bounce detection stuff in the other Mailman/Bouncers
modules is a losing battle, and I don't have much motivation to keep up
with the arms race. DSN and VERP should be all we need.
