	Personally I detect messages for this list by searching for 
wine-devel at in CC, From or To fields. That works perfectly. 
I use this method for all mailing lists and this always works.
	Adding a prefix is very ugly in my opinion and there is no good technical 
reason for that. Just set up your filters properly as I suggested and this 
will work without problems - for any mailing list.
