No.  There are already multiple header lines that unambiguously
identify the mailing list traffic.  Please don't misuse the subject
line for this purpose.

Why is this notion cropping up on so many mailing lists in the last
month or two?  Is there some new (version of?) popular email tool that
doesn't deal with multiple folders into which mail is sorted on

One lesson I've learned from my years as Linux's hood ornament is that
there's something worse: some folks can't be content to just take things
too seriously on their own.  They're not happy unless they can convince
others to go along with their obsession.  -- Linus
