the changelog shows it as :

    +	Added -l option to limit number of "untrusted" RCPTs. This is
    	different from sendmail's:
    		define(`confMAX_RCPTS_PER_MESSAGE', 50)dnl

	which affects all users, authenticated, white-listed, or otherwise.
	Requested by Derek Balling.

... which followed on a conversation you and I had that I needed the 
ability to say "inbound messages are limited to 1 RCPT, so that per-user 
filtering can happen, but authenticated messages, or messages from 
internal whitelisted IP addresses, would be entitled to send as many as 
they wanted/needed to.

And, IMHO, if a sending-site is misbehaving enough that they bork the 
"additional" (2+) recipients, then that's something the sending site 
needs to fix, not that the recipient-site needs to necessarily work around.
