My suggestion would be to filter your incoming emails according to the
X-Been-There header. Using procmail with the following rule puts each
mailing list in a different mailbox or maildir:

# Arabeyes
* ^X-BeenThere:  dot + at arabeyes dot org
* ^X-BeenThere: \/[^ at ]+

If more people are in favor of the change, I'll do it, of course. But I
really think it clutters the Subject line.
