Apart from this general rule we want to do some filtering. Maybe one 
filter so only mails from the mailinglist-user get archived. And we want 
to add spam/virus-filtering to some lists (if making them moderated is 
no solution...).

(This way we also don't have the need for an "anyone p"-acl, btw, but 
the only problem there is to get it on the ~200 folders. That's 
scriptable I think.)

I was afraid so :-)

Any chance this will be there in the nearby future?
