We've discussed this on the mailing list in the past, although I guess
we never sat down and spelled out the steps.  But yes, I do this.

The magic is all in replcomps; basically, that needs to be modified so
the "right" header is chosen based on some criteria in the original message.
Here's part of what I use, to give you an idea:

%<{delivered-to}%<(match address@hidden)\
From: Ken Hornstein <address@hidden>
From: Ken Hornstein <address@hidden>

That means, "If the Delivered-To header matches "address@hidden", put
a From header of address@hidden, otherwise use my work address.  This
assumes you have some mechanism to decide on the From header based on
the message headers, and that the mh-profile language is powerful enough
to make use of it.
