    I discovered another drawback of [SeeSat-L] identifier in subject line:
    When replying, this string is kept after Re:, so on return there is another
    copy of [SeeSat-L] prepended to the subject, and sorting on subject (or
    thread on would miss the initial post, and secondary replies
    (, as well as discussions on the same subject in other lists)
