Well, this is an adaptation of earlier patch, posted in this list

Actual list ID differs from List-Id header value.  I can't give
an example of other message header with similar syntax other from
From/To/Cc, but those headers already specially processed.

I also will be happy if I can just assign tag to a message using
list ID.
