The use of localized prefixes is a design flaw I believe was introduced 
by Microsoft. They did not consider the consequences of doing this (or 
many other of the “changes” introduced by Microsoft).

The `Re:` prefix should not be seen as being an English word. It's a 
“symbol” (like an HTML tag).

The email client is free to *display* it localized which is what 
Microsoft should have done. And maybe MailMate will allow this to be 
done if it should some day be localized itself.
