Seems like it might be reasonable for autoconf.  However, my biggest
concern is that right now, I filter both autoconf and automake messages
into the same mail folder, but debbugs anonymizes which list a bug is
being reported against (that is, the To: is rewritten as
address@hidden, so there is no longer any mention of 'automake' in
any of the normal mail headers).  While I could probably force filtering
to take place on X-Debbugs-Original-To:, that still doesn't solve the
problem of no visual indication on which list a bug is reported against.

Any ideas on how to resolve that issue?
