There is such header in the gnokii-users header.

I'll explain a bit more. I fully agree that real mail filtering should be
beased on the fixed headers such as List-ID. But eg I receive gnokii
related emails from the very various sources. Misc gnokii, aliases, misc
people that I know that I corespond with them on gnokii. And all these
emails go to one folder. Using [gnokii-users] from the Subject line I can
filter emails looking through the folder.

If you really think that such subject line does cause any problems please
let me know - we'll discuss it (off the list).

EOT for now.
