Don't know if that should be the solution, but if asking people
something, then this should be to *really* start a new thread instead of
changing the subject, which would only cause a mess in clients capable
of displaying a thread view. The changed subject, if replied to a thread
message would be sorted in the same thread.
Maybe it's too fancy, maybe people just aren't used or even aware of
thread views and just sort by date or subject...
Or maybe it's too much of an effort having to also fill in the list
address when starting a completly new message, as compared to just hit
reply and (maybe) edit the subject...
