Yep, I do understand your reasons.  It was for those same reasons that
I switched to using a gmail account just for all of my mailing lists.
After I started doing it that way, I quickly realized it was a Good
Idea.  Having mailing lists in your gmail account, especially those
typical lists that don't have a decent, searchable archive, make
searching list archives so very easy.  I even wrote a crappy script
for sending mail archives to my gmail account and added the feature of
sending a mailman archive to it.
