the client i use sorts subjects by discarding ^Re: so schemes that do
other things (Re[N], [Foo] Re: etc.) break my sorting. i suppose i can
undo this damage in a filtering rule but it does seem more polite to avoid
breaking things that have been working for some time. this does seem to
be standard operating procedure for wintel programmers though.

be the first word of the subject. Far from confusing a mail
client, I believe that would make sorting more efficient.
