Add [nginx] to subject lines on this mailing list?

List-Id isn't shown in my inbox listing, so that doesn't help me when 
I'm scanning my inbox. Even when I open the email I have to scan the 
headers to figure out just what the specific email is about.

All (almost?) of my other mailing lists follow this convention, which 
makes sense since every email from the "nginx" mailing list has to do 
with nginx, but few people bother to put "nginx" in the subject lines 
of their posts. Without this there's an assumed context for the 
message that isn't clear from the message subject.

So, personally I'd like to have it turned on, but if there's a reason 
to keep it off then that's fine by me.
