I already filter on something else.  I proposed adding the prefix for
two reasons:  (1) I file all my haskell-related lists into the same
box, and the prefix is handy for quickly telling which one I'm reading.
This can make the difference between, say, suggesting unsafePerformIO
(in the cafe) or a brief explanation of IO (on this list).  And (2) for
conistency with [Haskell] and [Haskell-cafe].

It's not important to me.  Sounds like the majority are for no prefix.
