Relating this to mailman, it appears to me that we do the right thing 
(tm) with both those headers.

The big advantage with EZMLM is the bounce handling - basically because 
it uses VERP and mangles the envelope.   The downside is the mail-only 
one address per function (subscriber) control interface (although it is 
proof against the Outlook user incapable of sending plain unencoded 
text problem).   Those that pay per byte bandwidth charges might also 
find ezmlm more expensive to run.
