So there isn't a way then, is there?

Basically the problem is that you can't know how I got assigned my IP
address.  *I* know, but *you* don't.  All you can do is guess.  And
that guess will be sometimes wrong, right?  

Still, if someone has chosen to block my email, then I will decide
whether it's worth my trouble to get in touch with them anyway.  If
they are asking me for help, I'm going to decide they don't really
want it from me.

Someone running a role address for Debian, in my opinion, has a
responsibility not to block mail for a reason as spurious as "it came
from a dynamic IP"; especially if they false-positive me on that test,
they damn well better arrange to have someone else read the role
