    server and inserted as an X-Seq: header field in the e-mail.
+   Your email client may be able to be configured to show the X-Seq:
+   header by default, and probably has a way to view the raw full headers
+   of an email.  The X-Seq header is also shown on the
+   https://www.zsh.org/mla/ email archives.  We can also, upon request,

+   mailing list, will send you an offlist reply with the X-Seq number of
+   your patch.
