Although aliases override .forward files, I have a ~uucp/.forward
(that uucp doesn't own) pointing at postmaster anyway.  Like using
a diaphragm with a condom.

This is important at sites that allow people to mung the aliases file
(although I think mode 777 aliases are becoming a relic of the past).
