If the installer only allows local redirection, then it may (or not)
save some newbies some trouble, but it's not a measurable improvement
for more experienced users.

If there's such a great concern about mail loops (which I think is
unjustified, but maybe that's just me), then the installer should let
the user choose between local redirection and remote forward, with the
local redirection being the default.
