I'm pretty sure the idea of fixing "RE: RE: RE(3)" in Subjects has

solution. Mailer in other languages use other prefixes, like "R:" or
"AW:", so I often receive subjects with *any* sequence of all these,
depending on the thread:
Subject: Re: Aw: R: Re: Re: Aw: Aw: R: ......
How do we generalize your recipe to handle this?
* $ ^Subject:([$WS]*RE([(][0-9]+[)])*:(.*\<)?\/[^R0-9$WS:].*
| formail -I "Subject: RE: $MATCH"
Would it be enough to replace the RE part with something like
(RE|AW|R) or what else?
