Adding ARC support

This version also aims to be a draft of ARC (Authenticated Received Chain) support with Sympa. Its implementation and documentation were contributed by John Levine.

In a nutshell, ARC is an e-mail authentication scheme that remedies a problem of DMARC especially with mailing list service. Supporting it, we may avoid confusing rewriting on originator addresses. For details about ARC, see a slide by DMARC.org (PDF).

We will look forward your feedbacks on GitHub issue page or mailing lists.
