Yeah, I've been thinking about making it more suitable for
personal mail, and the address field requirement is a bit
annoying.

Though I suppose it could be useful for making search queries
easier by expanding queries, using "$self" as a placeholder
to expand to all defined addresses for folks with multiple
email addresses... but maybe .mailmap is better for that.
