I hope that any fix for this is planned to be *only* for Gmail accounts
(or otherwise configurable per-account). I specifically do not want this
in general; I consider Gmail's "only one copy of any message, ever"
behavior to be a misfeature.

This is especially - or, at least, primarily - because last time I
checked, they don't consider e.g. "the Sent-folder copy of a message I
sent to a mailing list" and "the copy of the same message which I
received from the mailing list, which has been modified by the mailing
list software" to be different messages, even though their contents
(e.g. list footers and message header information) are different.
