In my small experience trying to get a 
.procmailrc file that sorts on address fields 
is an uphill battle. Sooner or later some 
detail change or somebody is creative
or something and, guess what, you have to add 
another line to the .procmailrc file. 
And there is a different pattern for every
mailing list. 
Been there, done that, several times ;-(. 

Btw, for the tlug list I would pick the
Reply-To field. Tlug is the only list I have 
seen that consistently sets this field. A habit
that I really wish more lists would have.
