I'm sorry, but the internet just doesn't work that way. I have 3
email accounts (mac.com, vt.edu, and cox.net). Both my college and
my house deny all SMTP to anyone but their local servers. If mac.com
published an SPF filter and VGER used the SPF filter, I would have no
way at all to send mail via this account, simply for the reason that
neither of my local ISPs will allow my to directly send email to
mac.com. Likewise for my vt.edu account while at home or my cox.net
account while at college.

IMHO, turning on SPF will not gain anything for the LKML; a bayesian
filter based solution would be much more tenable.

Cheers,
