I'm inclined to let you finish your changes and then add my changes to 
your finished version.  (Fewer changes in flight at the same time.)

Or would you like me to share what I have with you and you incorporate 
what you think is reasonable in your version?

Assuming that all bounces pass through mm-handler, it should be possible 
to do something with a copy of them.  The trick is to recognize them. 
This is trivial to match RFC formatted Delivery Status Notifications. 
It's more problematic with other formats of bounces.

I would personally be inclined to forward the bounce, as an unmodified 
attachment, to the list owner, postmaster, or some other configured address.
