It just occurred to me that it would be possible to do what XEmacs
does (as a convenience/vanity feature): issue all users an address at
your domain, eg of the form "closetotheedge%yahoo.com at example.com".[1]
It should be fairly easy to set up the MTA to rewrite and forward mail
to those addresses.  The main question at this point would be how to
link those addresses into the verification process.

In our case, we don't issue all users vanity addresses, only those who
are committers, and it's a labor-intensive process involving
correspondence about choosing and confirming the address.  But it
could be done for all users automatically as above.


[1]  Or for a retro mood, example.com!yahoo.com!closetotheedge. ;-)
