I don't know if Listar support this since they support the X-List header 
instead, but it would be nice to see X-Mailing-List headers in the LFS 
mailing list messages (but only because I can filter on that header and not 
the X-List one) :-)

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good 
with ketchup.
