Could someone make the list do the [cctalk] thing in the subject line?

Periodically, this is suggested.  And, so far previously, rejected.

A few folk oppose it because THEY don't need it because THEIR mail 
programs are successfully sorting by the header line of:
"List-Id: "General Discussion: On-Topic and Off-Topic Posts"

A few oppose it because it will add another half a dozen to a dozen 
characters to already growing subject lines, and people might eventually 
have to start trimming some of the RE: Re: RE: from the subject line.

I would find it convenient to have a visual indication "[CC]" of which 
messages are from the list[s] V which are similar subject lines from other 
sources. But, I can live with it either way, so it becomes an issue to be 
decided by who feels strongest about their needs.
