No, no and no. SPF is a completely broken idea, and it cannot work *at
all* for domains like debian.org. That would mean listing all the IPs
from which developers can send mail.

Why would it disappear upon upgrade? That would be a policy violation.

And again, I strongly disagree with enabling SPF in our default MTA. We
shouldn't even link it with any SPF library, as that would encourage
such bad practice.
