I incorporated this into aliases.cf, but also worked on
the successfull recognition of \realuserid syntax.
Unfortunately there still lurks strict RFC-822 syntax processing,
which dislikes non-quoted backslash:
This does mean, that things do work as documented, but not
the exact same way as with sendmail's .forward files..
Indeed there is a builtin "if the line begins with \, do replace
it with space" processing rule used in 'run_listexpand()' function,
which does result in bitbucketing the address...
