there are many other headers one may use. e.g., i use:
  * ^List-Id:.*full-disclosure\.lists\.netsys\.com

i do consider [Full-Disclosure] in the subject line rather annoying
because it wastes valuable subject space. good mailing lists have
subject lines that allow the pre-elimination of anything that doesn't
concern one. especially if it's high traffic, this is something more
than necessary. i vote to take the subject prefix off.

it would also be nice to have received headers cut off when the
listprocessor starts its job on such a public mailing list.
