Not a bad idea at all!

I chose a selectable VERP-ish window as I wanted to be able to
tailor the sensitivity to the normal rate of list traffic: It
wouldn't be surprising to get 10 bounces a day from one member if
your post averages a couple hundred posts a day and you dine one
VERP-ish per 10 messages...
