Quoth barry at python.org (Barry A. Warsaw):

I thought of that, but had some doubts.  I'd strike the ``if the list
admin sends it'' part, but maybe other sites are OK with admin passwords
or whatever it takes to make that work.  But mainly I'm not sure I see
how an average admin is going to re-send something and make it look like
the original - I'd hate to accidentally train a spam filter to reject
all mail from the admin!
