	Hoping one day we can have custom From's and Reply-To's for these  
mails, if the technical limitations aren't that great, Id' be OK with trac at macports.org 
  in From, sending to mp-changes, and mp-dev as the Reply-To.

	So, PortMgr hat back on, lets go ahead and flip this switch, lets see  
how well our users react. Thanks for bringing this subject up in the  
first place, to whoever did, can't remember any longer!
