Do you have your own MTA?

If you do not (or you do not use it for your own mail?), then mail and
newsgroups are functionally the same: both are pull and not push.

If you do... you should not be very worried by the task of configuring a MDA
to sort your mailing-lists.

My opinion in this matter (although, with my 3-lines patch to ffmpeg, I am
not probably entitled to give it) is that the best solution would be to
reject answers to digests, but that if this feature is missing, disabling
digest mode is acceptable.

1: I have a MTA on my boxes, but I do not use it for my mail. It is only
useful when Mr Cron wants to communicate.
