Seems it's time to pull out the good old article about writing good  


In particular, don't start your subjects with [ feature request ] or  
“just a small…” etc.

If you want to stress that it's a request, just use [REQ].

Why? Well, this is how my mailbox (for this list) currently looks:

It's not all bad, and I could resize the subject column -- but  
there's something about the irrational trying to change the world  
rather than adapt! :)
