fwiw, i've started filtering mailing lists into folders which use the
list-id for a list.  the list-id value should be computable for most
lists even if it does not exist in the headers.

for the misc list, the value would be:

  misc.openbsd.org

see the internet draft:

  draft-chandhok-listid-04.txt

for more details.
