	Yup.  Better than mine.  This one needs to go into the FAQ, too.

	Also from the Defaults.py file:

# For nicer confirmation emails, use a VERP-like format which encodes the
# confirmation cookie in the reply address.  This lets us put a more user
# friendly Subject: on the message, but requires cooperation from the MTA.
# Format is like VERP_FORMAT above, but with the following substitutions:

	Specifically, note that part about needing support from the MTA.

	Not all MTAs support VERP by default, but now that Mailman 2.1.5 
will automatically VERP all addresses used for bounce management 
handled through the site-wide mailing list, maybe this should also be 
turned on by default.
