I'm toying with the idea of having the mailing list software munge
certain types of mailing list addresses in the body of a message
as it comes in, before it is archived or sent out.
The patterns I'd look for are something like:

Any objections to this? This should leave email addresses in signatures
and in ChangeLogs alone while catching the majority of the abuses, I think.
We'd also talked a while ago about adding something like a --EOF-- flag
which could be put in a message to cause the mailing list software to
ignore everything after that point. This would allow the opt-in removal
of those multi-line disclaimers that everyone loves.
