Actually it would be quite useful.

Without such a header I am unable to *visually* distinguish between this and
other mailing lists or mail. Filters are useful for organizing, but I
personally prefer to see my whole inbox and to view and scan all inbound
content. Not having such a header is the equivalent of not having a "from"
column in my mailing lists.

Most mailing lists do this properly.

Of course the other thing I always complain about is that this is the only
mailing list I am on (out of >10) for which (at least in gmail) replies to a
thread go to the individual and not the list unless I say "reply to all" -
which I often forget because this list is the oddball. There have been
discussions about this before where others have said it shouldnt work the
way I suggest or that gmail is broken, but the bottom line is that of all
the mailing lists I am on, gmail (for me) gets it right on everything but
this one.

I realize that this is not as important as writing software and designing
phones, but it really would be great to get these relatively simple things
fixed at some point. If you are using mailman I think its fairly basic
config stuff.
