Lovely. That'll have caused numerous mail hassles.

Here's a patch I whipped up to do just that.. I know you requested it in
private email, but I'll post it to the group just in case anyone wants it.
How it works: It adds a tag for '-F' in the getopts line in resend. If
$opt_F exists, it adds a regex to remove the "From:" line out the message
headers, allowing sendmail to recreate it during resend.
Coincidentally, this could protentially be used to 'anonymize' a list,
if used in conjunction with -R in resend, assuming that no other headers
give away the origin of the message. I'll leave it up to you to
determine if this is a good or bad thing. ;)
