I don't really care much about the concept, since nearly all of my other
mailing lists have some kind of note in the subject line about which list
it is (by default, not design, since most of them are YahooGroups), but
I'm wondering why you are unable to filter...  I use filters for all of my
mail and it works great, and I also use Pine.  Maybe it's the application
I use...I use Tera Term, and I just go into Setup from the main screen,
Rules, then Filters.  The simplest thing for me is just to put the address
of the list (dragaera at dragaera.info) into the Participant field, which
scans if any recipient or sender is the dragaera list.
Hope that helps.
