Won't work in an environment in which the message arrives with a DKIM
signature including the Subject: header and when enforces valid DKIM headers
inbound. (Or for a list going to "outside" subscribers, if any of them
insist on DKIM validation.)

Of course, it's very unlikely that approved header as first line of first
text part works in that environment either.

But Mailman already (by common configuration) munges Subject: headers.

When Office 2010 public beta arrives (or before if someone here has earlier
access) it would be nice to check whether Outlook 2010 has learned a
rational way to add custom headers.
