Almost. They're checking his envelope-from address, which is available
in the Return-Path header and that, if differs from the From address,
some MTAs, or some configuration of them, will add to the

Q: How do Debian developers play Russian rulette?
A: Everone contributes a key revocation certificate and chooses a number
from one to ten. Then everybody executes a random generator - if it's a
match, then his revocation certificate is submitted to the keyservers.
