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: firstname.lastname@example.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.
