Handling of symlinked maildirs?

Im sorting my mailing lists with generic maildrop rules like this one:
However, I'm subscribed to a *lot* of mailing lists and in order to keep
my folder view sane I use symlinks to conflate some of them, e.g.
.debian.devel-announce -> .debian.devel
This works well since mutt simply ignores the symlink(s) so I don't even
need to exclude them in the config, but it seems that notmuch does index
each of the symlinks as a separate folder.
Does it make sense to have this configurable or even completely exclude
On a somewhat related note, unless I'm missing something, notmuch is
currently indexing only a few header fields, not including List-Id, and
there is no way to add custom fields. Am I correct?
The reason I'm asking is that in theory one could completely drop any
sorting (just drop all mail in one folder) and use something like
'list-id: debian-devel' instead.
Yes, I'm aware that one could work around it by using To:/Cc:, but I'd
like to distinguish between messages received via the mailing list or
directly to my private address, otherwise I'd be using Gmail for
everything anyway :)
 this also causes mutt-notmuch to generate a lot of errors when it
tries to symlink the same message twice to the cache maildir.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
