The problem here is that the vote tally script does not expect people to
fiddle with the subject line other than to add a [RESULT] or [CANCEL] or
[CANCELLED] tag. In the past, I've found quite a few result or
cancellation messages that also modify the rest of the subject line, or
even start a completely new thread. Every now and then I go through the
script's database and fix up results, but ... I'd really have expected
people to feel less need to fiddle with subject lines. :)

(At one point I tried following in-reply-to headers ... what a mess,
mail clients these days really have trouble following 20-year-old RFCs.)

And of course, some votes never get a proper resolution mail sent out.
