The MIT mailing list management system is OK for lists consisting mostly of
inside-MIT people and not very good for lists with a lot of outside
customers.  I think that the direction I was suggesting would make
krb-protocol mostly an internal-to-MIT list, which should reduce the bounce
problem a bit, both because the list would be smaller and because Moira
automatically purges deleted Athena mailboxes.

That could be a problem.  Is it actually set up that way now?  My message
earlier today didn't bounce, but maybe that list simply deep-sixes rejected
