I'm against it.
when you get 2 lists with big header tags on them like that after a bit
of interaction between the two you get headers like
Re: Fwd: [Ubuntu-au] Re: [] Why do we do this to ourselves?
(Was: Think this thread could get annoying? Was: ok, enough)
etc (even if I'm exaggerating somewhat)

i'm not against the default reply to being made the list though ;)
