[Bug 985149] [NEW] Add List-Post value to permalink hash input

Public bug reported:

Currently, we define the X-Message-ID-Hash as the base32 encoding of the
sha1 hash of the Message-ID content (sans angle brackets as defined in
RFC 5322).  The suggestion is made that List-Post value should be added
to this hash so as to be able to distinguish cross-posted messages.

This should be fine, and pretty easy.  My only concern is that the
header name is now a misnomer.

I wonder, is it worth coming up with a better header?  Now's the time to
do it since it's likely that there are almost no consumers of this

What about `Permalink-Hash` ?
