It becomes more complex when/if you want to support the concept of a
user having an account with the system, to which are registered some
number of email addresses, various connections from both the account and
individual addresses to rosters and lists, with various arbitrary mail
policies attached to each address as well as the account to control/hint
mail flow (eg "For rosters Q, R and S, only send messages shorter than
NNN to this address").  Yeah, Mailman doesn't want to head there today,
but that's where MLMs are heading, and fast.
