B when I can, or occasionally whatever's in procmail's venerable ^TO macro.
However, when talking to average user types, they'll most often:
1. wish they knew how to filter
2. /visually/ filter based on subject tags
3. sort alphabetically by subject
4. create MUA filters based on subject
5. create MUA filters based on To/Cc
Perhaps if the List-Id header were visible, they'd consider using that instead.
