Oerjan spake thusly upon matters weighty: 

Or perhaps those that just wouldn't get any use from it. I admit the 
only issue I have is if we start tagging everything with 
[GZG-L][SG2][DS2][HIST] .... or the various other permutations... 
we'll end up with some awful long subject lines. Now, that isn't the 
end of the world, but for my own sake, I don't need the extra tag. I 
can sort (admittedly using a few rules) on the list address and so 
I'm not too concerned. 

But if tags make a huge difference, I'm all for it. Is there any way 
to add them at the end of the subject line instead though so if stuff 
needs cropped in my mailers view, it would be the [GZG-L] tag? Would 
that screw up the sorting? Is that possible?
