FYI, I'm watching this thread and intend to respond to this patch, which
is one of a series of patches responding to the observations mentioned
in the subject line. But yes, I see what you mean - the subject line no
longer describes the content of these messages well and so it's not easy
for others to follow.

Agreed. Or, in a case like this where the patch is a direct response to
the original thread, I think replying within the thread and changing the
Subject line would be fine. (That would be seen as a new thread by some
mail clients and as part of the same thread by others, but has the
required effect in either case and is simple to do.)

Yup, thanks from me too.
