It wasn't an idle suggestion.  You can assume that I do, in fact, know
that this is possible, or I wouldn't have suggested it.  Why on earth
an email address is relevant here I have no idea.  You don't need
anything more than the IP address.

I made the suggestion as a challenge.  The trace is not actually going
to happen, as it is far, far more entertaining to complain and moan
about the GD than it would be to see who is bridging the signatures.
