Note that if the vacation program is only slightly broken, then it
will have a Precedence header that Mailman can do something with.
MM2.1 will not autorespond to any message that has a Precedence:
If the vacation program is /really/ broken, then there's a governor on
the autoreply system as a fallback. But I wouldn't mind if someone
suggested that folks using such broken vacation programs get disabled
or removed automatically <wink>.
