This is what the TODO file means by "message matching" - there's some
discussion in the list archives of how it might work that you may be
interested in.

We'll certainly end up having a feature for this in the end, but right
now all broadcasts are global.

It should be easy to implement, the main thing is just to decide how
it'll work.
