Yes, no, and thanks for the suggestion :)

I can't speak as to dccm, since I don't use it.  As for envelope, the
items logged by dccproc already have return-path, and the first received
line already contains the IP and time of the received item.  I'm not sure
what utility env_to would offer, unless the items aren't being logged in
per-user dirs.

It just make more sense to me to have checksums/additional info in the
same place, rather than both prepended and appended to the body (insert
"I don't know offhand the format in which dccm logs items).
