If I recall from the time when the change happened, this was a
limitation of the mailing-list software.  The admin's chioces were

1) show sender names *and* email addresses (and have list-members
suffer the spam that came with it), or

2) obscure both the email address *and* the name (which is what we
have now).

There was no option for obscure-the-email-address-but-not-the-name.

But yes, if that could happen, I think it would make a lot of people
on this list much happier. (smile)
