I wondered why this does not work as expected, and learned something:
The regex(7) man page states "To include a literal `]' in the list, make
it the first character." So my regexps are going to be this now:

        :0 c:
        *^Subject: (\[[^]]+\] *)*\[(FIX|ENH|ADD|GOOD|ANN|HACK).*\]

        :0 Ec:
        *^Subject: (\[[^]]+\] *)*\[(BUG|RFI).*\]

Let's see if this catches everything ...
