IMNSHO, we should be encouraging lists to move *away* from subject
munging.  Adding more characters into a subject line which can already
be quite long is just making the situation worse.

And of course, once you realize that subject munging is wrong, putting
the "list-sequence" into a header of no real value, unless you believe
your MTA/MUA filtering to be somehow dropping list messages, and your
sequence numbers will prove to you if that's true or not.  Oh - but
wait, don't we all, as PostgreSQL users realize that sequences aren't
generally guaranteed to be gapless anyways (sure, there are work
"solutions", but I'm not about to audit any MTA/list software for
