Maybe so.  But we could be allowed to register two addresses - one that
we use for sending and another one for reception of list mail.  And if
someone prefers to use a bogus sending address, that should not matter
as long as the other address is real.

I should like to see a system of this sort (or similar) on all the
FreeBSD mailing lists.
