He's not guessing here. It is nice for the large number of other lists
that provide the feature.

I'd prefer not to have to visit a separate folder for every different
email list. Fortunately, since most of the other lists I use do provide
the tags I can just assume the subjects lines that don't make any sense
are either svn or fedora related.

If someone adds the text it will probably come back in their replies and
be re-added in different variations by every subsequent reply. That
doesn't sound like s desirable situation.

Yes, it is the list owner's preference, so why bother pretending
anything else is involved? Just say you like it that way.
