Above and on the meta tracker issue I filed, it sounds like Martin is
saying that the e-mails should never be going to python-dev (or
tracker-discuss) in the first place -- due to a roundup bug and
because the e-mail is already being sent to the submitter and the
roundup admins.  Thus, changing the from address would only mitigate
the problem and not be fixing the root cause.
