As a comparison, Launchpad's code review process allows for commands
in the body of the message. It looks for specific commands prepended
by a space. I don't particularly like that approach though because
the space can be hard to see.
Wrapping the Approve pseudo-header in brackets might be okay, though
ideally, I think Mailman should maintain a set of OpenPGP public keys
and do approval matching based on that. Yes, I know that signing
messages is problematic for a lot of people, but it would certainly be
less ambiguous on Mailman's side.
I think anytime Mailman has to go trolling inside the body of the
message, we're in trouble.
