As has been mentioned, the consensus in the past has been against it
(the short space given by Modest is a very strong reason on maemo-*
lists!) and there are ways of dealing with it. For example, your email
address and headers *do* show you're using Gmail.

To configure a filter for maemo-developers/-community:

  1) Log in to the full Gmail on a browser.
  2) Click "Settings > Filters > Create new filter"
  3) In the "To:" field, enter:
        (maemo-developers at maemo.org OR maemo-community at maemo.org)
  4) Click "Next"
  5) Choose what you want to do to it.

Personally, I've created a "Maemo" label which is applied, and has a
separate colour for very quick visual differentiation when scanning
the subjects in a morning. You can even have Gmail auto-archive it,
skipping the inbox so you go into your "Maemo" label (exposed as a
folder over IMAP) to see new messages.
