Please DON'T do this. Only about 5% of the mailing lists I subscribe
to have this, and it annoys the heck out of me because it just keeps
me from seeing that many characters of the subject line in the summary

ANY decent MUA (mail reader) can filter on the other header fields to
put your cctalk mail into its own separate folder. I've been told that
even the d#%_at_ Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express can do that.

Agreed, that would make no sense. Just as putting it before the subject
text makes no sense.
