[Bug 1082495] Re: Support bracketed prefixes in subject as filters

I'm currently working on adding dynamic sublists (dlists) to mailman 3.
It's a feature that Systers wrote for Mailman 2.1 that allows dynamic
creation of "sublists" that people can subscribe or unsubscribe from
within a list.  Currently it uses the email address to do the filtering
much like you described, but doesn't do the prefixes.

Robin and I hoping to have the port of the dlist code done soon,
probably in January, with the goal to have the code be part of the
Mailman 3.1 release.   Once it's in I think it wouldn't be too much more
work to add the bracketed prefixes, perhaps as a configurable option for
dlist enabled lists.  It might even be a feasible project for a Google
Summer of Code student at that point.

So, in short, some of the necessary code already exists for Mailman 2.1,
it's actively being ported (as in, Robin and I are trying to get
together biweekly and hack on it), and it's probably not as huge an
undertaking as you imagined as a result.  Horray!
