Well, it's not like this is documented anywhere, so I think we're in uncharted
territory :-)

Well, I think they ALL depend on it.

Right now if you have duplicate email addresses (like on a From: and
a cc: line) they get silently cleaned up.  Seems to me this is the "right"
behavior.  But if %(lit) cleared out the address cache, then you could get
duplicates there.  Okay, that's not tragic, but to me it feels like a feature
regression.  Okay, I would agree that it's a bit bogus to send email from
yourself and cc'ing yourself, but I can see it happening.

I am leaning towards no; does anyone else have an opinion?
