    Indeed. What a bad idea that would be.

    On the other hand, that's also not a very good scheme. There *is* a good
    way to do this, and it would be really nice if vger could be taught to do
    it: add a List-Id: header (draft-chandhok-listid-04.txt RFC-to-be,
    implemented in lots of mailing list managers already).

    Examples from that doc:

    List-Id: List Header Mailing List <>
    List-Id: <>
    List-Id: "Lena's Personal Joke List"
    List-Id: "An internal CMU List" <>
    List-Id: <da39efc25c530ad145d41b86f7420c3b.052000.localhost>

    Mailman, incidentally, _has_ List-Id: support.
