You're thinking djb's fastforward package. [1]  The 'forward' program in this 
case is the one that is shipped with qmail, which has exactly the same 
function as using a & delivery instruction, except that it takes its 
forwarding address(es) on the command line, and can therefore be scripted.

fastforward could do what he wants, however, he'd have to maintain two sets of 
users.. and.. ugh.. it's just easier just to give this line a try:
