i'm surprised at the surprise.  it's the only tool available to
reduce the impact of forged spam -- i.e., someone sends mail
pretending to be me, and then i inherit the bounce storm.  i don't
know that -all is the sole reason, but i haven't had one of those
bounce storms in years.  it could be inconvenient at times, i suppose,
but hasn't been for me.  i run my own primary smart host, but to
allow occasionally sending mail from gmail with From: set to my
home address my SPF includes the google SPF block:
    $ dig foxharp.boston.ma.us txt
    foxharp.boston.ma.us.   1799    IN      TXT     \
        "v=spf1 mx ip4: include:_spf.google.com -all"

(the IP address is my home internet connection, which isn't an MX for
my domain.)

huh.  finally something that vile unequivocally does better than vim. ;-)
