So the proper thing to do is complain to the writer of the GUI app so
that it has an option for showing the list headers, perhaps adding a
menu entry when they are found.

CLI email clients do not typically show the full headers -- the user
must ask for them, just like a GUI app.  Most of the time I don't look
at the source of emails either.
