Naturally. It isn't going to pop up on one's private email ;)

Call me weird, call me different, just don't call me silly, but I like
all my email to appear in a central folder, then either move it manually
or automatically out to other folders (exception of course is Spam,
which I have no problem to sitting in Spam/ indefinitely.
That said, because i do this, i often like to see if the email was to a
list at a glance, and which list, hence why I'm personally for a subject
prefix. Why? I'm not totally sure, but most likely so it can help me
decide which emails I'm going to ignore first ;)
This is probably why it should totally be an option in mailman.
But until such a patch exists... I say yes to the subject prefix.
