I was at some point doing the "smarter filtering", i.e. each list to its
own folder, but eventually found out that it's better to combine the
whole thing, which is what I do now.  I also managed to figure out that
it's better to put stuff that doesn't pass through the list, but has a
Cc: some-list header, in the same folder; that way, duplicates (of which
I do get a few) are easier to handle.  (You can choose to remove dupes
by telling Majordomo not to send you mails that have you on Cc:, but
I've found that I lose some people's emails due to my own spam
filtering.)  I have on my TODO to have procmail throw away an email that
it already delivered (e.g. by comparing Message-Id's), so if someone has
a solution to that I'd like to know.
