Same here on the gmail spoilage. But naturally not everyone likes it.

Modern procmail has a 'catch duplicates' feature. It's not perfect --
just like gmail's, it leaks a dup every once in a while, specially if
the mailing list sw messes with the message a lot -- but in practical
terms it works just fine.
