It can get tricky to actually track down the subscribed address that
the bounce is associated with.  This can be due to poor bounce
messages, .forwards, and a host of other factors.  I wrote
bin/find_member to help with this because often there will be /some/
identifying information that can be used to craft a regex to search
the list memberships.  Then you basically have to apply a little
wetware processing and send a test message.

It would be nice if this was more automatic.  It's a hard problem
