Ugh. Subject prefixes. I have a hack that takes these things, along with
footers at the bottom of each message, out of the archived copy.
Unfortunately it's, well, a hack. Patch on request only; it's
EWH-disapproved and might lag the current version of MHonArc a bit.
If you're using procmail to send the list mail to the archive, you can use
a rule like this to strip the prefixes:
SUBJECT=| formail -xSubject: | sed 's/\[gtk-list\] //'
|formail -i "Subject:" -a "Subject:$SUBJECT"
I only stuff the mail in a spool file, but you could also pipe it to
mhonarc. Something more creative would you let you strip the footers, too,
without patching MHonArc.
