Maybe I am just stupid, or maybe my email client is inadequate, but I  
cannot work out how to filter the same email such that different  
copies go into different boxes.  For me, all 3 or 4 copies of a cross- 
post get filtered into the same box.  I have not yet managed to find a  
reliably distinguishing set of headers to separate them.

As for Reply-to: munging - I agree that _changing_ an existing header  
would be bad, but would be very happy if mailing lists were to  
_introduce_ one on messages where none already existed.

(I _am_ aware of the general polemic against using a default Reply-To:  
header in mailing lists, e.g. http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html 
  but disagree fundamentally with many of the implicit assumptions and  
explicit arguments therein.)
