That's a good idea.  But I think that can be accomplished w/o a regex by
listing `[listname]' as a prefix to list for each list you are on.

I'm hesitant to try to use a regex because the only regex code in nmh is
strictly for pick and generalizing it or making it use POSIX regular
expressions is more than I want to take on at the moment.

Yeah, I'm chicken, I admit it.
