Could we think on some stunnel or OpenVPN feature under
people.debian.org/other machine to get mail from debian.org routed to the
outside world?

With stunnel, a level3 of authentication would be needed, so that the server
gets a client certificate and the client gets a server one. With the
combination of both, one can connect to, say, port 25025 and get a proper
postfix/exim SMTP server on the remote machine.

I have been dealing with a similar configuration and seems to be working fine
so far.
