Hopefully, it won't get out of hand.  I have seen some ugly flame wars
start over this.  But in case it does, the list has my apolgies for
opening pandora's box.  Did everything one go buy their Nomex undies?

Yes, I figured as much, but I couldn't resist the jibe!

This is OK by me.  As I said, I have a procmail recipe that does this,
so I am all set.  I just wish an implementation of sieve would get out
in the UNIX world (Mulberry for the Macintosh is going to support it,
I believe)

For those who don't know what sieve is: it is an IETF (draft?)
standard for mail message filtering.
