WikiForNow puts a generic address as the 'to' field (though i've been
reminded since then that ':;', or something like that, is probably the
right thing for "undisclosed recipients"), and uses MailHost.send()'s
explicit 'mto' parameter to specify the recipients.

The current thinking is that the MUA's process of resolving the addresses, 
or something like that, may be introducing the delay, and that we can 
mitigate that at the MUA.  I'm hoping to have some time today to marshal 
our forces to get that done, if not then i'll try again tomorrow...
