Sure, but that's a bug in the module - it should probably construct N 
commandlines less than the system calling limit instead.  Calling one 
process with multiple recipients remains a win though.

It also will break it if @to is just a bunch of empty strings or 
undefs, but I'm less sure which end should filter it.
