It changes for me with like every e-mail, Philippe's most recent
e-mail got "Wikiversity-l" for me. :-)

It's not; actually, it's controlled by your mail provider -- gmail.
AFAIK, you actually get like 9 copies of the mail from the mailing
list software (one from each list), and gmail just hides all of the
duplicates from you.  I think the one message that you do end up
seeing is the one you received first, or maybe gmail just randomly
picks one.
