While we're on the subject.. is there a single regexp that can reduce an 
an abitrary collection of Re's and Fwd's to a single Re: ?

I currently preprocess my incoming messages with a perl prog consisting 
a long series of regexps to deal with this.

I would be nice if I could craft a couple of stripsubjectcode expressions
that would deal with this.

The regex code you use in your perl program can be used within
SubjectStripCode.  MHonArc uses the value of $_ as the final
subject string after invoking SubjectStripCode.

Now, if you want some regex help on how to handle something like the
above, here is my quick stab at it:

# Remove mailing list subject identifier.
# Remove cascading sequence of Re/Fwd: prefixes.  The regex will
# keep the first prefix and discard are subsequent ones.
