It's been in the TODO for ages :) Configuring it is the tough part: being able to group it so it affects certain lists + projects, and prioritizations in case of address conflicts across different projects, etc; yet being able to share them (e.g. across all kernel-related lists, especially if it's employer-dependent for some projects). I'm working on inbox grouping right now for searching across multiple (or all) inboxes, so this will tie into that. The tricky part is making configuration sensible (because the target is to support over 30K inboxes(!))
