SPF-aware forwarding looks really obnoxious outside a "we use SPF"
environment.  I think you will find out that unless we start deploying some
part of SPF, you won't get the forward filter installed.

Anyway, you are not forced to lose mail. You CAN have a BSMTP feed or do
even weirder things with your Debian email, so you already have a way out if
your ISP enables SPF filtering.

For the record, I am all for enabling SPF-aware forwarding, and SPF blocking
on @d.o.  And I would also vote yes on enabling SPF completely for @d.o.
All of these depens on proper non-CPU-hungry and no-failure-prone support in
the MTA, obviously.

Sure thing. I hadn't really understood the point you were trying to make.
