I'm not sure to understand what you have in mind here.

On a technical point, I fail to see how you can have both leading
white spaces preserved and lists interpreted, in a reasonable way.
Thus, as VERSE environment preserves those spaces, lists can only be
left uninterpreted there.

Perhaps what you are missing is a block where only line breaks are
verbatim. There's an export option to preserve them on the whole file
but not on a part of a document, AFAIK.

I think VERSE (patched) is better than EXAMPLE because you can still
benefit from text markup (and LaTeX snippets). Sadly, mails can
sometimes be, well, very distant from poetry...
