IIRC you can also alias an entire domain (packages.debian.org) to one user
(how lists.debian.org is currently done). So rsync@packages.debian.org
gets translated to, say bruce-packages-rsync.

Then, ~bruce/.qmail-packages will execute a script to process it, or you
can have .qmail-packages files for each pkg if you are worried about
