You know, it occurs to me that you actually MIGHT want to return the entire
address.  If you had things like this in Alternate-Mailboxes:

Alternate-Mailboxes: Yahoo Tech Support <address@hidden>, Google Tech
        Support <address@hidden>, Microsoft Tech Support

You could simply set the value of the From: header to the complete thing
and that would be a lot simpler.  If you want to run it through %(addr),
of course you have that option, but that's one-way.

And it might be useful if Jon gave us some feedback on what he thinks
might work for him :-)
