It would be hard to tell the difference between this and someone
doing prep work for a spam attack. I'd say, even if you sent email to
the postmaster explaining, it'd still raise hackles, and might well
not be believed by anyone who doesn't know you, explanation or no.
And if this were a tool that was going to be released for general
usage, I'd say it'd make list managers very, very unhappy. Imagine
if, oh, procmail did this for every user. it *would* turn into an
attack on list servers, from sheer volume of requests.
