Over last six months I found only 3 spam messages sent from 
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/python-ideas and for some reason I 
think that my mailbox filter would be smart enough to put them into 
appropriate folder even they came from Mailman.

Maybe mailman can be improved?

Certainly. But the threads should be stacked in different order that just 
by month, because some threads can span over several months.
