Public bug reported:

MM3 still uses a lot of X- headers, but some of the X- prefixes can be
removed.  In general, we can just claim the Mailman- prefix for Mailman
specific headers.  Candidates include:

Mailman-LMTP-MailFrom (i.e. X-MailFrom)
Mailman-Copy (or remove this header)
Mailman-Content-Filter (from X-Content-Filtered-By)

Also, fix the outdated comments about add-dup-header in
avoid_duplicates.py and verp.py.

Probably also get rid of X-List-Administrivia (and possibly
reduced_list_headers).  These seem unnecessary now.
