Yeah, I wouldn't mind writing the patch for sendmail.  I don't have
sendmail but it should be similar enough.  Although almost rhetorical,
would you then be up for testing it?  Maybe we should also wait to see
what Julian thinks in case he'd like to add this to the main distrib.

I'm not sure.  I know message->{clientip} will be correct.  I'll have to
check what the RBL looks against.  Perhaps Julian is the best to answer
this.  I'm out until tomorrow afternoon but when I get in, I'll check it
out if someone else hasn't beat me to it.
