Yes you can, just set an email address in the deliver_to field in the
aliases table (or use the dbmail-adduser program to do so).

This is already possbible. Just cal the external program (like vacation)
from the alias table using the | or the ! forwarding character in the
deliver_to field in the aliases table:
me [at] home |/usr/local/bin/vacation
| is a direct forward.
! is a direct forward which adds a mbox header (this is needed for some
programs like mailman)
