I haven't forgotten. I still have only briefly looked at your changes,
but I'm concerned about your rev 1381 in light of the two comment lines
that precede the change.

The issue is if owner notifications come from the list-bounces rather
than the site email bounces. Then if an owner notice bounces, the owner
is sent a notice of the bounce and it bounces again and so on in a
bounce loop.

I don't understand why you are making this change as the sender
originally is Utils.get_site_email(mlist.host_name, 'bounces'), so it
already has the list's domain.
