It would just be nice to visually identify when something is wine
related. All other lists I've used to this, it just makes sense to me.
The list-id header doesn't appear to be set on my full headers output.
I'd still like to have [wine-devel] prepended to the subject line, I get
lots of list mail and like to when someone emails me personally or via
the list.

I had this same argument, along with many other users of the lcdproc
mailing list, most _users_ agreed, but the two list admins refused to
change it. I think its best to mung the reply, its my personal
preference but its not as important as the subject line issue. Having
said that, the lcdproc guys also let unsubscribed users email into the
list, resulting in a massive increase in spam to my mailbox.

Yes, it seems to be arriving OK now...
