Unfortunately not.  The digest version is just that -  a collection of
all the Piclist posts.  Topic filtering is only possible on an
individual email basis.

Well, it is always possible to add more topic tags.  The problem then
becomes what is regarded as off-topic and what is classified under
other tags I suppose.  Any ideas for new tags?  Maybe the eponymous
[RM] ;-)

Anyway, adding new topic tags is very simple in Mailman, so as long as
we don't end up with dozens of them, I'm happy to add them as
required.
