The "VM" mail reading package for GNU Emacs maintains the "References:"
header.  Observe the headers of this message for an example.  However, it
doesn't use them for anything.  Other MUAs may do similar things.

Anyway, I prefer newsgroups in general.  The main advantage of mailing
lists is their flexibility.  You don't have to get hundreds of people to
agree with you to get one running.
