I do wonder if overall we'd be better off with the other
workaround (don't change From lines in list emails, don't
add "[Qemu-devel]" prefix to subject lines)... It would be
a one-off annoyance to people who filter list mail on subject
rather than other headers, but it would get rid of this annoying
wart where a handful of senders end up with their mail with
a from address that our patch management tools don't handle
very well...
