I've never gotten such cross-post filtering to work with PAN, but there
was another reply from someone saying they did.  Maybe something has
changed since I tried and it now works (perhaps in CVS only, which I
haven't yet loaded, so...), or maybe I didn't get the hoops I jumped thru
in quite the right order or some such, or maybe he was just saying what
/should/ work, not saying it did, as I agree, what he said /should/ work,
but I couldn't get it to do so, here.

Anyway, a reply to that from someone else who tried it and either got it
to work, or couldn't, would be welcome.
