Nope, that's not difficult do to.

The catch is that this doesn't do what I want it to do.

I don't know about the /only/ problem per say, but certainly /a/ problem.

I would much rather have a spurious message in my Inbox in addition to 
the message that I want, from the mailing list, in the folder for said 
mailing list.

In this case, I need something that will identify the dup in the Inbox 
and remove it when the message arrives from the mailing list, second / 
minutes / hours later.  This simply is not conducive to typical procmail 
(like) filtering schemes.

Also remember that these two messages are not identical.  They are 
close, and the message from the list is based off of the direct message.
