Yes, 'Precedence: Bulk' is the de facto standard for this. The SVN
lists all set that flag.


You can also play games with the sender address to trick vacation into
not replying to it. (That might actually be easier in some cases.)

However, I wouldn't want our mailer to set this flag unconditionally -
i.e. needs to be opt-in to set this flag as some cases would want to
trigger those notices. -- justin
