maildir (and procmail too as I hear, but I don't like its syntax) is 
*very* powerful. I recently did a major rewrite on my maildrop rules. I 
had one rule for each Debian list, now I have exactly one:

# These are the lists.debian.org lists
if (/^List-Id:.*<debian-(.*)\.lists.debian.org>/)
	to Maildir/.debian.$MATCH1	

Similar for googlegroups, alioth, ... All that was needed was a bit of 
folder renaming ;)

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
