Not entirely accurate. This is what send-hook is for. If you look at the
email address from which I am sending this, you'll notice that it is
gsslist+debian@<mydomain>. For the mutt-users list, however, it is
gsslist+mutt@<mydomain>. I have send-hooks configured to set my sending address
automatically based on the destination address (as well as an fcc-save-hook
for where the sent copy goes).

I actually use m4 to manage my list subscriptions conveniently (though not
beautifully), since I am on lots (over 50 at last count). For your
particular needs, you can get away with a single send-hook for each
outgoing email address, so it shouldn't be as big a deal.
