I don't think so. Moderate.py calls the Message.get_senders() method to
get *all* the addresses from the From: header, envelope sender,
Reply-To: header and Sender: header. If any of those addresses is a
member, the post is from a member.
It is only later, after we decide it's a non-member post that Moderate
calls Message.get_sender() to get the single, first address in From:
and Sender: headers and the envelope sender to match against
Thus, if the list moderator's address is the envelope sender and is a
list member, the post is a member post.
