The From: addresses will remain the same as they do now, so there won't
be a significant difference there.

There will be some -- people who are running on systems that are totally
un/misconfigured will have From: addresses that are so mangled that
previously an MTA on the route between the user and the gnu.org MTA
would have bounced it, but I'm not sure whether that counts for or
against the idea of not using the normal mail channels to submit bug
reports.  :-)
