Because quite often really important mails get deliberately cc'ed, and
it's less good to lose them.

Also, this script will tend to put cc'ed list mails in your inbox and not
in your list folder, exactly the opposite of what's desired.

More complicated solutions are also possible, but they tend to have
similarly irritating flaws (like delaying mails that were cc'ed to you
because they're for your urgent attention)...
