	I suppose I have seen it, though I didn't pay much
	attention to it...

	The Algorithm within router is such that when it needs to
	look up for an error return address, it picks them in order:

		Sender: ...
		Errors-To: ...
		MAIL FROM:<...>

	( router/rfc822.c:erraddress() )

	This, like Tom Samplonius noted, is according to RFC-822...
	(Well, "Errors-To:" I could not find..)

	... I too have been under impression that when SMTP-envelope
	exists, it has absolute override to any headers in the message.
