          That is better. After working through feature update, I noticed
          that the delimiter is also applied to sender addresses, so I am
          declined to replace the recipient_ portion.

          Perhaps this is a path into the future:

          recipient_delimiter
          This is no longer a main.cf parameter. It is used only in the
          $forward_path, where it expands into the user/extension separator
          that was found in the recipient email address.

          address_delimiter_alternatives (default: $recipient_delimiter)
          This is a new main.cf parameter, containing the set of characters
          that may separate a user name from an address extension (user+foo)
          in a sender or recipient address. The default setting maintains
          backwards compatibility fo rexisting configurations.
