Yes, as long as you do your own splitting into folders and not use
Google's "tags". I've done it myself for a few months to years.

The last sentence seems to be tangential? There's another little
flamewar lurking there, but whether you use digests or not seems to be
independent of whether you reply just to the list, to the poster, or
I remember I've tried to use digest mode with some lists in the past
but I gave up on that precisely for this reason. Do you have a strong
preference for the digest way?
