This is what we do for yellowdog-announce.
I'll impliment this on here if you guys promise me not to get carried
away with replies :)

ie: [yellowdog-general] Re: [yellowdog-general] Re:
[yellowdog-general] Maillist

As you can see this gets annoying. -announce is moderated so we don't have
to worry about that :)

This okay with everyone? (Just change the subject or chop off all of the
recurring [yellowdog-general]'s)
