Yes I agree, but sending of warnigs messages is controlled by DSN, which
is also in mailman supported too. But probably not on every place.

Precence bulk is bad due to filering rules on client side, some peoples
will read bulk messages only sometimes.

Due i18n of mailman, there is needed object which will know how to send
8bit admin messages and shloud support QP too for compatibility with older
mailers. This can implment DSN in admin messages too.
