I personally don't want to [rpml] attached to every letter (automatically
or not). If I want that type of filtering then I'll find a way of doing
it based on the From: field. The problem is you get messages with subject
lines like:
Subject: [rpml] Re: [rpml] Re: [rpml] re: [rpml] Reading stl files into...

This quickly pushes the true subject off the subject line.

Just my opinion, John
