That wouldn't do it. The VERPing or personalization is done in the
OutgoingRunner process which will still be the one process doing the
SMTP for all recipients. The only way this won't happen is if some
recipients are refused during SMTP and the message is requeued for retry
of the failed recipients. The requeued message might then be in a
different slice.
