Brad,

Sorry to chime in late, but would it make server side rules/filtering 
simpler if we added the mailing list name in the subject line?

The reason I ask is that since moving to a new mail server I can no 
longer create filters on the 'sender' ( or any other more exotic ) 
headers. This makes filtering a real pain for messages coming from the 
openjdk mailing lists. If the mailing list name was in the subject 
line... Of course I would need all the mailing lists I'm subscribed to 
to do the same.

-Chris.
