Well, the off-list copy you sent me had:

Sender: address@hidden

Well, AFAICT you'll still be able to configure it to put whatever
you want in there.  I don't see how turning on draft_from support
always changes any of this.  nmh may be broken now, but my proposed
changes wouldn't change the brokenness.  I lack the energy to solve
this problem completely; you are of course welcome to contribute
code.  And if you really hate this behavior ... well, there's always
spost :-)
