i am personally a big fan of subject prefixes, especially when i tell
procmail to route several mailing lists into one folder. so whenever
there is a list that does not have one, i add it with sed:

:0 fh
* ^Sender.*owner-accu-general@accu\.org
* ! ^Subject.*\[accu-general\]
| sed -e "s/accu-general:/[accu-general]/gi"

now, this is like converting all arriving mail to html when reading
and it solves the problem quite nicely for me. so suse-security couldd
remove the prefix and ask each who likes it to put it in themselves.
this would definitely be more preferable than removing it. it also
saves 15 bytes of bandwidth :)
