Why would you need to? Iiuir what you do is add a [flashcards] prefix to
your message subject for flashcards messages etc, then if people
receiving the list want to filter flashcards messages differently from
other jsword-devel messages then they can.

Hmmm ... sounds like a very good idea for sword-devel ;)

Here's some ideas for sword-devel prefixes
any more ideas?

A convention like this shouldn't be compulsory but it would help people
to spot things of interest to them when things get noisy without having
to have separate lists.
