sigh. I completely forgot about a real and terrible behavior that
is common to a number of MTA's, especially sendmail. Namely, they process
their queue in lifo order. Yes, they REVERSE mail. Hence, any MTAs
between the originator and the list could well do much damage and affixing
the date/time that the list receives it will do more damage than help.
