Brad, I realize this is getting a little off of Mailman but how is that
different from what a BCC does? A BCC "header" is local to the originating
MUA - it doesn't appear in the transmitted message but the BCC recipients do
become envelope recipients. So from the view of the MTA, isn't what you say
Mailman does exactly the same as what the MUA does with a BCC?
