Sheesh, if they're not going to do email like everyone else, they're
not part of the internet. I mean, pulling out headers, come on?
Dropping email silently, when *not* blackholed? ::gibbers::

Okay, but that bloats the subject line more, and will get flames from
people who filter on "[listname]" instead of "List-Id:.*listname".
Whatever. As long as you don't mess with List-Id, I don't care :-\.

How about adding a line just after the headers, in the body, saying
"message x of y"? Or in the footer or wherever Mailman inserts stuff.
