I've just told mailman on alioth to look at the envelope sender for
figuring out who mail is coming from.  This means that most lists can
just add debbugs@ and dak@ to the allowed email list and it will pretty
much do the right thing.  This will break things if the normal
subscribers send with random envelopes, but that's probably a bug in
their mail environments.
