Except spam often has a forged sender address, so sending an error to this 
address is usless at best, at worst part of a DDOS attack on the poor guy 
who's address is forged.

I would be interested in this as a way of preventing mailman from replying 
to anything that might be spam, so the ability to filter the -request 
addresses would be a good idea.
