Mark says no, but it can be addressed using a custom Handler. The
main logic is
if is_a_child_list_of(list, umbrella):
subject = subject.subst(list_tag, "")
and the handler should be inserted after the subject header is munged
(which happens in CookHeaders, IIRC) but before the message is sent.
(Sorry, I don't have time to chase down how to look up the child list
predicate or the list_tag at runtime. Maybe somebody else knows
I don't think it's a good idea to try to address the duplicates issue
on the Mailman side. The messages are slightly different in a way
that is important in some use cases, such as replying to one child list.
