X-Injected-Via-Gmane: http://gmane.org/

Seems to be the most consistently used. I found examples in my personal 
archives of a gated list going back as far as 2003. Googling the header 
gets hits as recent as last month so it is still in use.

They also add an, X-Complaints-To: header in the form of 
X-Complaints-To: usenet@'something'.gmane.org
Where 'something' can be main, sea, or ger. 

Also various path headers and usually a message ID. None of these seem 
consistant enough to use for filtering.
