Yes, and the subject line of every TeamWare message was, helpfully,
exactly the same, i.e., "Code Manager notification (putback-to)".

Yes, it's possible, though it'd waste space in the subject line.

What do others think?

For filtering purposes you can key on the two X- headers that we're
adding to every Mercurial notification message, e.g.,

    X-Hg-URL: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/jsn/jdk
    X-Hg-Changeset: 57ad67ba0e3452169921d79166557272dd489430

If a message contains one of those headers then it's a Mercurial
