Please excuse me if this has been discussed before: searching on very common keywords did not provide with any conclusions.

Many monks change the prefix of the title of response nodes by setting

instead of just keeping the extra "Re: " that was prefixed. I like this a lot, but frequently forget to do it myself.

So, lazy as I am, I wonder why this process isn't automatic? Basically do a:

$title = "Re: $title" unless $title =~ s#^Re^?(\d*):#'Re^'.(defined $1 ? $1 + 1 : 2).':'#e;
on the title of a node before being placed in the form. Does this make sense?
