I've just encountered one (remote) ticket system which at first glance
appeared to be doing something funky with the message-ids, but turned out
to be rather loose with the detection of its ticket numbering in subject
lines (and not including RT's subject line).

Having watched RT and this system declare auto-reply war on each other,
I've decided to implement my own suggestion in tracking message-ids.

Mainly because RT itself currently doesn't include the generating
message-id in any correspondence, which breaks these cutsie suggestions.
