[Mailman-Developers] Precedence of mailman generated messages

A number of MTAs generate delay warning messages for messages that 
cannot be delivered within a certain period of time.  This is normally 
disabled for messages with Precedence headers that declare them to be 
list/bulk/junk mail.

The *list* messages sent out by mailman do have this precedence header 
(thankfully - I have been mailbombed in the past by MTAs that ignored 
the precedence).  However admin mesages, including message bounce 
copies, are sent on without added Precedence.

It would suit me personally if admin messages also had Precedence set 
down - would that be a good thing in general?
