Okay, I can see a problem forming in that case. Not one I'd be unable
to solve IF the subject change has some logic to it. As for now, I
only read Ubuntu, Suse and OfftopicSuse and they specify that a change
of subject should reflect a change in contents so there is no problem
except for accidental changes in topic (somehow RE: doesn''t qualify
as the same subject). Thanks for the warning, I didn't know this could
become a problem.
