It depends on who you're catering to.  If you're catering to the
stupid and ignorant, then you're right:  Bringing the list to this
decade's mailing list standards would be stupidly arrogant.  If you're
catering to people who are presumably using current software, then
there is no technical or social reason to keep living in the past.

That being said, if you can't handle List-ID filtering by this point
in time, what possible hope do you have of 1) contributing
constructively, or 2) getting wine to work at all?
