Personally, I don't think adding [subversion-users] to the beginning of an e-mail subject line is to much to ask for. I know it would help with those few messages that someone only replied back to the user and ended up in another folder only to be found two days later. Besides, some of us are stuck with lousy corporate e-mail systems like Novell GroupWise. Having an easier way to even identify an e-mail visually from our list would be nice.

Well, in that case, this issue has been discussed to death before and
the answer was 'no' (and as far as I'm concerned still is): Some have
crappy corporate systems which don't allow filtering, others don't
have large screens (braille readers!), meaning that the
'[subversion-users]' string takes 17 out of 80 characters available to
them (which is 20%). Also, a descriptive subject adds more value to
the reader than the prefix string.
