I'm assuming this will already be the case - perhaps I'm
misunderstanding something though. I was assuming that the [pool]
[poolalloc] [libc++] prefixes were added by the SVN mailing software
(which we're not planning to touch) and the [llvm-commits],
[cfe-commits], [llvm-dev], [cfe-dev], [cfe-users] prefixes are handled
by the mailing list software which we'll modify/reconfigure to not
include any of the prefixes.
