This is essentially what yahooeonelistgroups does: you can send
mail to the author of a message by clicking on the link over their
name and filling out a WWW form. You don't get to see the e-mail
address, but you do get to send them a short message. It's not a
bad solution, and probably the way we'll go when/if our existing
measures prove ineffective.
