Excuse me, but what is the point of pre- and postfixing subjects
with ".. "?

For me it just means a) I can read less of the actual subject (it's
already prefixed with "[YAM-dev] " and sometimes "Re: ", and I read mail
using Pine on a 80 column display and b) I often just read the first few
letters to decide if the letter has my interest, and thus thinks that new
letters are just followup's to the last thread that had the ".. "-prefix...

Maybe I'm just weird...
