Well maybe not _read_ everything, but certainly scan the subject
lines and make a guess on how interested you are in the content.

There are parts of this project that I'm very interested in,
parts that I'd like to follow the discussions on when I have
spare time (hah!) and some parts that I have no real interest
in. It would be very useful to me if I could filter various lists
into different mailboxes for reading with the appropriate amount
of urgency.
