Re: OT: adding a prefix to the Subject line?

Points taken, but let's give folks a chance to chime in with their preferences.  (I knew about the List-Id header, but some folks may not, so it's useful to mention it.)  That said, using that (or any other) header adds quite a bit of friction to the process of scanning, recognizing articles from a given list, etc.
