I am sorry, I don't buy this argument at all. First, a 4xx is not
"significant load" on any mailer unless you're running some piece of
crap. Sure, when you reach the thousands, even postfix could break
the occasional sweat, but which one server delivers thousands of
messages to continuously new from/rcpt combinations -- because
remember, greylisting caches.

Yeah sure, which is why some of us wanted greylisting years ago, so
the question of time would have been longer regardless.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
