New way to filter mail to the lfs mailinglists

Hi guys,

All mails coming from the mailinglist will have an X-List: header containing 
the listname (lfs-discuss, lfs-apps, alfs-discuss, alfs-profile and so forth) 
which you can filter on. Most people here filter on the To: and CC: headers 
but that causes problems with cross-posting. A mail to lfs-discuss and 
lfs-apps for example both end up in the same folder. This is no longer the 
case when filtering on the X-List: header.

and put unsubscribe in the subject header of the message
