This is probably true, but it doesn't need to be.  Normally the lists
filter administrivia.  So if you put the administrivia filter HOLD
before the non-member filter DISCARD, Daevid should win here, too.

I'll check this and if necessary submit a wishlist RFE, maybe even a
patch, since it seems logical and harmless.  It will be some time
(weeks, maybe), so anyone can feel free to beat me to the punch.  :-)
