As you correctly note, the contents of the Subject: is split into
tokens. If the first token is not a command, the next is tried, but
that's as far as it goes.
The code is in Mailman/Queue/CommandRunner.py around line 134
if not self.subjcmdretried and args:
self.subjcmdretried += 1
cmd = args.pop(0)
return self.do_command(cmd, args)
