[Bug 410236] Re: mailman responds to mail with no valid command

I am implementing this differently from the patch. It will be a site
option, not a list setting. The implementation is not a complete
solution to the problem as it doesn't address mail to the -join, -leave,
-subscribe or -unsubscribe addresses as mail to these doesn't contain
commands. It does check that mail to -confirm does contain a token (To:
matches VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP), but not whether the token is valid.

I am also implementing another option to not include any 'spam' payload
in the response to email commands which will help in some cases, but
there is still a problem with From: containing a spamtrap address.
