Hmmm, I've been thinking for a long time that I'd rather see the
author's name than the paths anyway, e.g.:

   "svn commit: rev 262 by sussman"

and just show the paths in the body.

So, while I admit my first reflex is to say haughtily "Why should
headers be changed to accommodate naive mailer software?", perhaps we
can make the change for another reason. :-)

How do others feel about putting author instead of paths in the
subject line?
