I occasionally do use this route, although I could email the package
maintainers directly. Would it be possible to allow mail from
arbitrary hosts as long as it has some special header, say
"X-Debian-Pkg: foo" where foo matches the package being mailed?
However, I wouldn't personally have a problem with it being blocked
completely from non-Debian machines.
