Placement of RE: in subject lines

I used to be able to cull messages from the max list by selecting all
messages with “maxmsp” and then displaying by subject. Now we have “RE:
[maxmsp]” and [maxmsp] RE: RE:” and other variations. This causes messages
with the same subject to be sometimes widely separated in a subject sort.

In general, I like the new list but why should some things become harder?

Filtering by subject line places one in a state of sin.

This is my chunk of procmail for the MaxMSP list:

* ^(To:|CC:|Resent-To:|Reply-To:) .*max.*@cycling74.com

(having filtered the more-specific Cycling lists earlier on.)

I see I even still have a nested Antiorp filter:

:0
* ^From: integer@www.god-emil.dk
/dev/null
