FWIW, I'm using GMail, and nothing else, to achieve acceptable
filtering/sorting _for me_.  But then I am interested in at least
seeing subjects of the wider community go past and not doing sharp
filtering on specific projects.

This makes assumptions about who wants to see those messages intended
for the additional lists.

It is working about as well as can be expected _for me_.  Others have
also shared a similar sentiment, including the tools they use to
achieve that result.  I fully expect that there is a significant
number of people for whom the current situation is not working well
_for them_, and some of those folk were in that room.
