Actually, from my point of view, this is a completely unimportant aspect.  
For *me*, the whole point is in pre-sorting a huge mail volume so I can  
better decide what to read, and what to ignore. (And where to search for  
stuff, too.)

No, they deal with the problem of deciding what to read. (And yes, -devel  
is again much too large.)
