And if one of the 'tagged' people does a 'reply to list', will the MLM 
REMOVE the tag as it goes through to the tag-free folk?  If not, then 
that might well be the ugliest/worst of the solutions: now I'll have mail 
in my inbox *both* "Re: this subject" _and_ "Re: [MYLIST] this subject" 
(depending on who contributed to the thread), and I don't know about 
yours, but my mail client won't sort those correctly [and so I won't be 
able to follow the thread particularly].
