Good eye, Jay. Poking around, I find that some DNS names are
more equal than others. My test post from my gmail account
maj.fortinbras -at- gmail -dot- com had header

 X-Greylist: Sender IP whitelisted, not delayed by milter-greylist-2.0.2 
(portal.open-bio.org [127.0.0.1]); Thu, 09 Jul 2009 23:29:00 -0400 (EDT)
X-Greylist: Sender DNS name whitelisted, not delayed by milter-greylist-2.0.2
 (portal.open-bio.org [207.154.17.70]);

while the domain with less cachet,
maj -at- fortinbras -dot- us,
has

X-Greylist: Sender IP whitelisted, not delayed by milter-greylist-2.0.2 
(portal.open-bio.org [127.0.0.1]); Thu, 09 Jul 2009 14:25:45 -0400 (EDT)
X-Greylist: Delayed for 00:16:28 by milter-greylist-2.0.2 (portal.open-bio.org
 [207.154.17.70]); Thu, 09 Jul 2009 14:18:37 -0400 (EDT)

and has forever; this explains the infinite waiting time I typically
also experience.

Some fortunate posters even obtain the coveted

X-Greylist: Sender IP whitelisted, not delayed by milter-greylist-2.0.2 
(portal.open-bio.org [127.0.0.1]); Tue, 07 Jul 2009 13:30:29 -0400 (EDT)
X-Greylist: IP, sender and recipient auto-whitelisted, not delayed by
 milter-greylist-2.0.2 (portal.open-bio.org [207.154.17.70]);

This may be even more stupendous than a commit bit.

cheers,
Mark
