I'm not sure I like the idea of tying this into the server directory;
clients in general don't need a list of people who don't want
anonymous email.

Also, is it really a good idea to have a big list of everybody who
doesn't want anonymous email?  It seems like a spam/abuse target.
What do mixmaster operators do for cases like this?
