	I stand corrected.  I had missed this option.  For the benefit of 
those who don't know what Mark is talking about, these options say:

# 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:
# %(confirm)s -- the list-confirm mailbox will be set here
# %(cookie)s  -- the confirmation cookie will be set here
VERP_CONFIRM_FORMAT = '%(addr)s+%(cookie)s'

# This is analogous to VERP_REGEXP, but for splitting apart the
VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP = r'^(?P<addr>[^+]+?)\+(?P<cookie>[^@]+)@.*$'

# Set this to Yes to enable VERP-like (more user friendly) confirmations

	Interesting.  I missed that one, too.

	Thanks for the clarifications!
