[FFmpeg-devel] Filtering clueless-user spam from the lists

I'm wondering if we could implement a few idiot-proofing filters for
the ffmpeg lists to keep annoyances down. Some ideas to auto-reject:

- Mail cross-posted to more than one ffmpeg list
  (annoying user questions cross-posted to devel list)

- Mail with Re: in subject but no In-Reply-To: header
  (broken threading)

- Mail without Re: in subject but containing In-Reply-To: header
  (thread hijacking)

All of these are trivial procmail recipes.
