Bug#172384: bug: Setting From via environment variable is pretty dumb

Package: bug
Severity: important

You don't find out that the From address is borked until somebody at
debian.org googles for the person who reported the bug because a reply
bounced.  I guess that explains why it seems like nobody at debian
ever answers my bug reports any more.

I've never heard of the EMAIL envvar before, and a quick check of MTAs
and MUAs I have doesn't turn up any references.
