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: .+@arabeyes.org
* ^X-BeenThere: \/[^ at ]+

Oh but this is way too much trouble ...

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

Why? it is just a word that indicates from which list the message is coming...anyway.. I hope nobody complains (and if they complain, I told you where to redirect their complaints :P)
