I'm afraid that I'm inclined to agree with Craig... This same subject has
been discussed "ad nauseum" on other lists - especially when linuxppc split
into numerous segments. Subject space is tight enough without the added
noise (and redundant information) of the list name yet again. (I count 3
instances in the normal header alone - not including the subject field and
the routing info...) Please, let rules/filters handle the movement into
folders using the information in the headers.

Just my two cents...
