Now, on a more practical note, how would people on this list recommend
configuring an autoresponder so that it ignores list traffic entirely,
short of having to configure each list individually?

	In no particular order:

	1) Allow the responder to have a file of addresses it is not to
respond to.

	2) Once a single response is sent, add the recipient address to
the do-not-respond list.

	3) Ignore any bulk precedence mail; You may or may not extend this
to list precedence.

	4) Turn it off promptly when you return.

5) Ignore messages that contain any List*, Mailing-List* or X-List* headers.
