I agree with Roland, I'm on two other mailing lists and they both have a
short string with brackets at the beginning of the subject line
identifying themselves.  This is handy if your email program doesn't
support filtering on the reply-to field, for example.  Also, it could be
abbreviated to something like [Sq], although [squeak] or [Squeak] would be
fine, too.
