include "In-Reply-To" field to aid email threading for some clients
|Target version:||Candidate for next minor release|
Patch was made against 1.4.5, but will most likely apply to the 2.x line as well.

This patch does the following:
- Removes Tracker Name and Issue Status from the Subject.
- This does not belong in the subject. It's repeated in the email already.
- Adds an X-Redmine-Issue-Tracker header to the email
- I'm sure someone wants to filter their Redmine bugs by Tracker/classification. That's quite reasonable, but a header is a better place for this data.
- Adds an In-Reply-To header in addition to the References header
- GMail respects this as do many other MUAs.

Here's the rest of my message that was curiously getting marked as spam:
GMail threads messages by Subject and In-Reply-To. Other MUAs like Mutt have a more sophisticated algorithm for threading emails, but I do not believe this should be considered a bug or deficiency on GMail's part. Simply put, data does not belong in email Subjects. The only thing that should change is a prefix of Re:, Fwd:, etc. Anything else is a gross violation of email and internet etiquette.

Sorry for the ticket noise, but hilariously I've had to break up my message to find the part that Redmine is marking as spam.
There are people out there that get overwhelmed by a giant sprawl on emails in their Inbox. You're making Redmine a better experience for them, too.
