[Mailman-Developers] Uncaught bounce notification

So, unless I'm missing something, if you use VERP, you should be able to
process any bounce from a subscriber.

Is it desirable for mailman to pass on a VERP bounce coming from a held
message notification sent to a non subscriber?
Would  it  make sense  for  mailman  if it  receives  a  bounce that  is
obviously  verped and  that there  is no  such member,  to just  drop it
silently (maybe with a log entry)?
