out of curiosity, what's the advantage to having the rev number in the
subject? it strikes me that if you need the rev #, you're probably
looking at the rest of the email that describes the changes, so you
could just put it there. i imagine you could use it to order the
mails, but they're dated, so that's not really necessary...
