I do not know the host.  Don would know better.  But I don't think it's
a good idea to do that.  If anything, we want to be more restrictive in
what we redirect to address@hidden rather than in what
we let through to the mailing-list.  Otherwise, the day the emacsbugs
email happens to come from some other machine, we could end up with
a forwarding loop.

It's not terribly serious if a few messages go straight to the
mailing-list without being fed through address@hidden
