Hrm. I guess I'm too late for the voting, then. I use tagged 
addresses (envelope recipient) to control routing into folders. I 
would like to see the prefix go away.

(I know it doesn't look like it, because I use this same address as
posting address on numerous mailing lists. But I generally set it 
NOMAIL after subscribing, and I read through a different address.)
    Offlist mail to this address is discarded unless
    "/dev/rob0" or "not-spam" is in Subject: header
