I'm thinking specifically of instances like this one.  You adressed this 
message to my email address and to the list.

I forward email through cyrus using sieve.  On the cyrus server where I 
have dup suppression disabled, I received two copies -- one to from you 
and one from the list.  On the server I forward to, I only received one 
copy but would like to have both.  Odds on a patch being merged?

Regarding infinite loop, what about counting received headers like 
everything else does?
