[Mailman-Users] Bounce handling for invalid owner adresses

we're using Mailman 2.1.9 for about 800 lists and or the most part we're 
very happy with it. However, with such a number of lists it's hard to keep 
track of lists that might not be used anymore. Sometimes we have lists with 
no subscribers, but more often we find that owner's addresses don't exist 
anymore. Currently Mailman just ignore bounces from owner addresses. I 
would like to see bounce handling foor those addresses similar to the 
existing regular bounce handling. One idea would be to send an alert to the 
mailman list if a specified number of bounces has accumulated for an owner 

Is something like that in the pipeline? Or is thsi situation too rare to 
merit the effort? How do other sites handle this situation?

Thanks, Sebastian
