Specifically, I think we should clean up the issues that are causing
reputation loss (which pretty much means dropping rietveld, although
in theory we could fix rietveld instead if someone wants to finish
Ezio's patch).  And then we need to understand the issue that caused
me to back out the change: something is sending null-Sender emails to
multiple recipients.  We may not need to fix it (mail.python.org rejected
them but they may be useless messages), but we probably should.  I suspect
they are actual bounces, but I don't have the time to investigate further
at this time.
