Yes. Been there done that (see my comments on that bug and also on 16913).

The _nonstandard_ 'Delivered-To' is used for loop-detection:
and is not defined by any RFC. As such, 'Delivered-To', shouldn't be
used twice to begin with. Does the Apache listserv _really_ need two
'Delivered-To' headers for loop detection?

The easiest & best solution IMO would be to add it as an X header
(example: X-Delivered-To: moderator). That way it is a distinct header
that any mail or nntp client that is capable of filtering on headers can

Certainly with all of the experience Apache has with mail lists, it
