Maybe you could simply link to the discussion, then?

FWIW I prefer the mailing list subject lines as they are.

[openmoko-users] preppended to the subject line just adds clutter and  
reduces the useful description of the subject that can be used in  
that line. Only so much fits in the list of messages in the mail- 
client's window and [openmoko-users] isn't as useful as "Bug with and SMS sent from Nokia 800. Endianness problem?"

Prefixing [openmoko-users] or whatever can cause quite a bit of mess  
if messages are cross-posted between lists or redirected from one  
list to the other ("this shouldn't be on -dev, so I'm replying to - 

As I understand it people who really want the list name added to  
their subject lines can do so by (invoking sed from?) their own  
mailfilter / procmail recipes.
