Hah! That'll last all of about three days.

At least, that's how long it took for my users to line up outside with
pitchforks and shotguns...we quickly removed that check from being the
default behavior and added it to our most aggressive filtering
configuration (for those users who, like me, just don't give a damn about
getting mail from people who can't take the time to configure reverse
DNS.)
