If modifying the subject is folder-dependent and is about stripping
some part, then you can use the folder properties, using the "simplify
subject regexp" thing. You set a regexp there and the matching part of
the subject will be removed (in fact: hidden) from the subjects shown
in folder message list. Source file kept untouched (this has been
thought preferable).
