Since he's not here, let me step into Guido's time machine...


Kids, don't try /that/ at home.  But hey, it worked.

If your message has a header 'X-BeenThere: python-list@python.org'
it will not be forwarded on the mailing list, 'cause it'll look like
it /came/ from the mailing list.

Okay, so that's a bit crufty, but you'll forgive me if I didn't quite
understand what the blue knob did.
