Ok the domain is now verified.

Now, I've had a closer look to the service options and it seems 
there's no way to use the service other than pointing our MX records 
at Google; an all or nothing option.

At this time, we do have a dozen of forwarding email accounts and 
another dozen of administrative aliases for our domain.  Most people 
will already have a personal email account somewhere and will just 
want their Sugarlabs mail forwarded there.  There doesn't even seem to 
be a way to reuse existing Gmail accounts.

Each user could individually configure forwarding in their Gmail 
preferences, but that's somewhat annoying.

How about forwarding foo at sugarlabs.org to the temporary email account 
foo at sugarlabs.org.test-google-a.com?  This would let us individually 
create real email accounts only for those who need them.
