So that if the mail bounces, the bounce will be returned to
listname-bounces at ... instead of to the list or the OP, and automated
bounce processing will work.

Actually, it should suffice that this address is the envelope sender,
but some non-compliant MTAs send the bounce to Sender: or Errors-To:
so SMTPDirect.py sets these to the envelope sender.
