Yes, but these are discussions of a suggested patch that isn't in the
current distribution.

This is presumably Apple's code, not ours, but it does essentially what
our AvoidDuplicates handler does which is not send to any list member
who has requested to avoid duplicates and who's address is in the To:
or Cc: of the message. This doesn't avoid sending two messages with
the same message id to the same person. It only avoids sending a post
from the list to the user if the user might have received it directly
and we can determine that.

More in my next reply.
