i always use the List-ID: header lines when they are available... this allows me 
to have a folder for on-list messages and another for off-list messages... 
especially when the list prefixes all post subject lines with something like 
"[seesat-l]"... so i detect that and the list-id line... no list-id line means 
the post is off-list and so get shuffled to that folder instead of the list 
folder ;)

yes, this would be a nice addition... especially since this is one of the lists 
with posts and replies that i can't filter as i describe above... currently i 
use "To: or CC: contains" which works OK...
