	This sort of thing would make it much more difficult to debug 
certain types of mail problems.  Been there, done that.

	That said, if you really want to take this kind of risk with your 
mail servers and your users, the code to do this sort of thing 
doesn't exist with Mailman today.  If you want to contribute code to 
perform this kind of function, you're free to make that submission.
