I don't know if it's pedantically RFC-correct, but occasionally you'll
see a Summary field in the header.  I think using the first line of
the log in the Subject field and the file list as the Summary field
would be a good way to do it, *if* people's MUAs would display
Summary.  I suspect they don't (mine does, but mine does a lot of
nifty things that cellphone MUAs don't :-( ).
