What happens when the MTA is upgraded to support multiple virtual domains?

Suppose I have the addresses <cnewman(_at_)isp(_dot_)com> and 
<*(_at_)cnewman(_dot_)isp(_dot_)com> which

I don't understand what those addresses indicate in either redirect or
vacation.  vacation doesn't currently specify that addresses are
supposed to be wildcards, and that wasn't my intent when I wrote it.

In some implementations, I can unfortunately imagine the local-part

Suppose we consider "local" to mean domain of "", with the @ left out
since there's no domain.  I don't want vacation to trigger because I was
bcc'ed on a message also to 
I instruct vacation that "tjs" is an alias for me, I want it to trigger
only when the mail is to <tjs>,
i.e., no domain at all.

I don't think virtual domains are a problem; however, vanity domains may
