Either that, or to intercept the subscription disabling process so
that the address is not disabled.

My thoughts exactly. Occasionally I have had bounce messages sent by
other servers back to some address other than the address in the
Return-Path: header - some have gone back to the list, some to the
list-owner, etc. IOW, something screwy in one of the thousands of
servers I send mail to.

I grep'd the logs on my server, and couldn't find any entries for the
proxy address that didn't have "status=sent" on the line.
