[Mailman-Users] Footer Bloat

I've noticed that as people reply to threads on my mailman instance, I see
copies of the footer pile up at the bottom of each message.

Rants about top/inline/bottom posting aside, I thought it would be a smart
feature of mailman to look for a copy of the footer in any incoming message
before adding the footer to the bottom.

Or perhaps easier to implement, instead of "apply a footer" or "don't apply
a footer", add the option "apply footer to the first message of each thread
and no other messages of the same thread"

Am I just missing where this setting is, or has this not been thought of

"apply footer only if footer text not already in message" would be my logic
of preference.

If that's not already something mailman can do, where would I modify the
code to add it?
