Precisely -- an option in Defaults.py that an admin has to go
actively looking for. If set, VERP0ish options then appear on a
per-list basis for the specific configuration.
I have an announcement list and a discussion list.
They have duplicate membership lists of ~50K members.
The announcement list is low traffic -- few posts a week.
The discussion list runs ~150 posts a day.
I want to VERP the announcement list and share the
bounce/unsubscribes between the lists (which should be automatic).
I have considerable disk IO savings (the system is compleatly
throttled by /var/spool IO contention) if I can bundle the RCPT-TO
envelope sizes for the announcement list to something large and
gain the VERP benefits from my low-load announcement list.
This of course is ignoring the human factors, which I may not
consider significant for my user base.
