Sorry; I didn't think my suggestion would be all 
that controversial. As a data point, I checked 
through my email archive for Mailman-based 
mailing list messages which had or didn't have a 
[listName] subject prefix:

- 2288 messages with a [listName] subject prefix

- 20 messages without a [listName] subject 
prefix, of which 15 were nginx postings

So, omitting the prefix is an unusual choice, but 
if it's necessary then that's fine.

Thanks for responding,
