1) How many people have their own mail server and can do *server-side* 
mail filtering
2) In the absence of server-side mail filtering, what happens on mobile 
email clients (I don't use mobile for email, but it's a very popular 
thing among those who actually do more than make phone calls with their 
phone and/or tablets with data) re: filtering.  Are there readily 
available email clients for mobile than are reasonably easy to configure 
to do filtering by List-Id?  In the failing to accommodate for mobile 
access is a good way for a project to die a slow painful death.  For 
that matter in 2018 there is a lot more cross-platform development, 
including using Windows (and there Outlook/365 as primary email) even 
for things like Openwrt development; again unless you want slow painful 
death and irrelevance.
