I won't  mind if the  Subject stops being  mangled (I use  the list-post
header for filtering). I also won't mind if the body stops being mangled
with additional MIME parts; the same information is already available in
the  list-(un)?subscribe  headers) and  I'm  of  the opinion  that  list
control mechanisms  belong in headers.  Besides, how often  does someone
accidentally get subscribed to a mailing list anymore?

I don't think however, that "Munge From" sounds like a good idea.
