[Bug 889635] [NEW] Per-list configurable message headers for digests

Public bug reported:

Digest messages are sent out with a partial set of headers for each message.
The list of headers kept for each plain-text digested message is configured by the setting:

    'Message', 'Date', 'From',
    'Subject', 'To', 'Cc',
    'Message-ID', 'Keywords',

My users are very perplexed and frustrated by the e-mail headers
included in the digest - in particular, the Message-ID and Content-Type
are meaningless, and the To header is repetitive.   All this "noise"
clutters up the content and makes the digest harder to read.

Given that this is a plain-text digest, with the headers listed in the
message body, I don't really see an RFC  issue here?   Yet they can only
be configured using a list-wide override in mm_cfg.py

I would be willing to work on this to allow a list admin to override the plain digest headers using the web interface, but want to hear from the development team if this is a patch they would be willing to consider before I invest the time.
