Except if you're using Gmail as your infrastructure (like I am).  Gmail
only posts the message once when it recognizes the unique Message-ID as
duplicated, even if the multiple messages come into "To" and/or "cc" via
different target e-mail addresses (which is often my case).

I hate to make Gmail look good, especially when I started this "bash Gmail"
thread, but hey, they do a few things right.  (Like labels!)
