That would be an obvious choice, but I think that it works out better
to make it:

  From: <pusher>@racket-lang.org
  To: plt-dev at list.cs.brown.edu

but have it actually sent to the commits list (I can do that at the
level of invoking sendmail).  This way, plain replies go to the
pusher, and reply-all goes to plt-dev.
