Well, in Pegasus Mail I filter on "users_at_subversion.tigris.org"
somewhere in the headers it that does it. If I wanted to be really
smart I would do it like Arturo 'Buanzo' Busleiman (though in
conjunction with the Reply-to setup - or rather the lack of it - of the
subversion lists users of Gmail don't necessarily get the List-
headers at all as Gmail censors the mail by deleting the copy from
the list in favor of the B/CCed copy). I admit that it is a nice thing,
but I still say that list-id would only be really useful if list-
unsubscribe would also result in a remove the filter.
