Muting applies a 'mute' label and removes any future emails from your
inbox. However, it doesn't change the read/unread status.

If I were to try to tackle this problem in Gmail, I think what I would
do is try to create a filter which makes only emails sent to both
gwern0 at gmail.com and haskell-cafe at haskell.org, say, and have the
filter remove from inbox & mark read matching emails. So in theory I'd
only see the one copy sent by haskell.org. (If one can't directly
match on being sent to 2 addresses, I'm sure there's some more
indirect approach using labels and multiple filters.)

There's also 1 or 2 mailman options which do something similar with
suppressing duplicates.
