No, I don't have to use the same pattern for all parts, but it's
already enough of a kludge. It would probably be better to optionally
define a special syntax to be used in the Subject: header for this

If I were going to change the pattern beyond adding \xA0, I'd tend
toward something that would translate to 'Approved:.*?Hon94Bar' in
this case. However, this failure to recognize \xA0 as whitespace is
the first new problem that's been reported in almost 3 years, so I
hesitate to make a substantive change that might have unforseen
