I just redid my filters so that all messages that have [RC5] in their
Subject are moved to my RC5-List folder.  This also works for
RC5-Announce because they put [RC5-Announce] in the subject.

I still liked the old way of having rc5 at llamas.net in the reply-to but
it may cut down on people replying to the whole list when they meant
to send it to one person,  Ohh well,
