i've been wondering for a little while about tagging emails to create
virtual mailing lists. apache has done subject tagging for ages for
[VOTE]s and [PROPOSAL]s. over in jakartaland, subject tagging has been
used to manage a high volume list ([<component>], [all], [doc],

ATM cross project collaboration is limited by the formal structure of
mailing lists which are not at all fluid. jakarta commons has to use
clientside filtering over in the commons which discourages some

couldn't we hack together some cool cross list filtering delivery
system based on subject tagging?

say (for example) that dims, james and alan are all interested in [IO]
but to avoid overload and they are subscribed to different mailing
lists where [IO] is definitely on topic. maybe any subject tagged [IO]
could be delivered to a virtual list (or feed as news?).

making threads work would be difficult but i thought i'd throw it out
there in case anyone else could think of a way to make it fly...
