That would require the calling applications to know to do a lookup on
redirect.somedomain.com and not somedomain.com. SpamAssassin for one
won't do that.
I'm trying to get user configurable redirector pattern matching into the
SA code (bug 4176). I've got one ISP using it to identify domains being
redirected to via the zdnet redirector with good results. Hopefully I
can get it in 3.1.
