I am not sure I exactly understand what you are asking for but I am nearly
sure that I won't be able to do it with the current mail lists manager.
I think it does not have this capability and hacking it is not an option.

But one bright day we'll move to use Siesta http://siesta.unixbeard.net/
and then everything will be different.

For example then we can blame ourself if we are not able to hack it to

On the other side of the coin I have heard there are very good spam
filtering tools written in Perl. But I don't want to push the the
responsibility to the suffering end user especially because I am
one of them.
