As mentioned elsewhere in the thread, there are several things you can
use to filter the messages.  I think the list-id header is probably the
best choice.  Thunderbird can't do "after-the-fact" filtering on IMAP
folders, but it will filter new messages on list-id if you tell it to,
as will most other email clients.

Worst case, you could always look in To: or CC: for the mailing list
name, as it's fairly unusual for someone to BCC: a mailing list.

There was definitely an absurdly long discussion about this already (I
vaguely recall that it crossed between both the private and public
lists) and I think the question of whether we will turn back on subject
tagging is a strong and definitive no.

Someone less lazy than I should dig up those URLs on the subject. :)
