Message numbers are the relatively uninteresting case as they are an
arbitrary value that Mailman may not (usually doesn't) actually know
at the time of broadcast, and which further, doesn't actually apply
or necessarily exist for those using external archivers.

Message-IDs would be a better and more guaranteed portable route and
in the general case don't need to be embedded as you can already
find them in the bounce.
