E-mail subject line max char limit is 998 right? An extra 6 chars isn’t that 
bad. ;)

My request for the prepending wasn’t for my filtering. I already filter based 
on list-id. 

As I said it was a human request based on how I group my mail filtering based 
on topic of mail list:

Filter: Privacy Enhancing Technologies — tor-talk, tor-dev, 
guardian-dev….tor-servers, and lot’s of other lists.

As I said it’s for my human eyes - easier to scan when there’s a bit of context 
of where the mail came from…

I didn’t tell, I asked nicely.
