Uhm, no, why should it be?  Having gnus set up to use SMTP auth and
using a different server based on what the From address is would suck
and be non-trivial.

How would you set up so that my laptop (or yours or whoever's) can
send mail from about ten different domains if the server you are
sending to is using SPF and the domain you are sending from have it
implemented in DNS?
