See how fucked-up that comment is? Right. Same goes for another comment
stating that "every decent mail client can do processing". It's simply

they all have different capabilities.

I don't feel like powering Asia. Just my own home would be nice, given the
VAXen here.

I still vote for a small [cc] tag. In front of the subject.
