I understand what you are asking for. Since people reply to emails it turns
out that they can change the title of the issue by changing the subject (the
part after the [issuennnn] part and before the optional trailing
[something=value, ...] part. So putting something in the subject line is
fraught with difficulty in that the parser of the incoming email subject
line will have to 'undo' whatever we do to the outgoing part. That's always
a problem because whatever you choose becomes something users can't put in a
title. We'd have to be awfully careful.
