OK, so what I did is similar to what Geert recommended.  While I was 
looking up always_bcc, I found the sender_bcc_map and receiver_bcc_map, 
using the two of those I can specify which accounts to apply that for 
instead of blindly applying it to the whole site.

After I had that working, being one to not leave well enough alone, I 
set up up a virtual mail address to log these mails and allow us to 
review them and delete them.

For me it meets the overall monitoring requirement, but so burdensome as 
to make e-mail a pain for them.  Thinking this through and speculating a 
bit, I could come up with a solution similar to the milter which puts 
stuff into a logfile by defining a transport that does that in the file.

Thanks guys for pointing me in the right direction.
