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:
  bad:    \realuserid
  ok:    "\realuserid"

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...
