It's too early in the morning for reading RFCs. Does RFC2822 say you should
add your own domain to unqualified addresses in non-local mail, or just
say that unqualified addresses aren't legal?

If the latter, rejecting the offending mail would seem more appropriate
than adding '@vger.kernel.org' to it.

Might also be useful to stop any mail with null reverse-path from getting
to the list - or do we already do that and the ones that slipped through
couldn't even get that right?
