    This sounds like a good idea. We can document this on the mailing
    list web page so folks know how to set up their mail filters.

    Longer term, I'm willing to consider setting up a separate
    announcement mailing list. However, before I can do that, I need to
    upgrade my system. This is something I have been planning on for a
    while and I expect it to happen over the next couple of months. With
    the new system, I'd also like to move away from majordomo to a list
    manager that's more intelligent in automatically handling bounced
    messages and spam.
