Mailman doesn't (yet) parse all bounce message formats, especially
since some MTAs almost ectively encourage per-site custom bounces.
Further, there remains the problem of forwarded accounts where the
bounce comes from a non-subscribed address to which list mail is

This first case will get better with 2.0, but until Mailman fully
supports VERP, will always lag.  The second case can only be
addressed by VERP.
