I still think it's a strange question.  If you follow it to its logical
conclusion there would only be newbies asking questions and package
maintainers answering them.  So an email thread would be:

Subject: minTTY porblem

From: Andy Koppe
Subject: Re: mintty porblem

Subject: Re: minTTY porblem

From: Andy Koppe
Subject: Re: minTTY porblem

Subject: Re: minTTY porbem (SOVLED!)

i.e., you'd only ever see two people in every email thread.  Clearly
that isn't the case.

But, nevertheless:  ONTAGA!  ONTAGA I say!
