And would probably defeat the purpose since spammers would know which
adresses they have to spoof into the From: Header.
Furthermore, if spammers got that, it might happen that they use
debian.org adresses as sensible default for From: Adresses which will
raise the amount of Bounces to debian.org. That sounds like a great way
for the Project to shoot itself into the feet.
