I too would like to see a more accurate list ID on the reminder messages.  I
take advantage of the monthly reminder messages to help me cleanup the
subscriptions on the lower volume mailing lists.  When I get a bounce, I go
delete the user.  Fortunately, I only need to filter through three or four
lists so it's not hideous but it would be nice to know exactly where to go
to delete the given user.
