I wrote a little procmail recipe to do this for my personal mail.  You must
install the procmail package and configure it to process your incoming mail. 
Then add this to your ~/.procmailrc file:

# Prepend [ubuntu-ca] to list messages subject line (if it's not already there)
:0 fhw
* ^Sender: ubuntu-ca-bounces at lists\.ubuntu\.com
* !^Subject:.*\[ubuntu-ca\].*
* ^Subject:\/.*
| formail -I "Subject: [ubuntu-ca]$MATCH"
