PPA Accept/Reject mail subjects inconsistent

Bug Description

i recently had to debug a ppa rejection, but it wasn't obvious from the mail which ppa it was going to. It turns out that an error in my ~/.dput.cf resulted in it going to the wrong ppa, and I would have spotted this if the PPA name was in the subject of the rejection mail.

Here's a subject from rejection mail:-

subject: tomboy_1.4.0-0ubuntu4~ppa~maverick0_source.changes rejected

Here's a subject from an acceptance mail:-

[PPA tomboy-packagers-stable] [ubuntu/maverick] tomboy 1.4.0-0ubuntu5~ppa~maverick0 (Accepted)

Would it not make more sense to make the rejection mail display the PPA name?
It has been pointed out that the mail headers contain "X-Launchpad-PPA: popey" (the ppa name) but this seems an obscure way to pass that information to the developer.

I have QA'd this on dogfood, by uploading a package with a lower version than one that was already published in the PPA, and then ran the PPA process-upload script, and had the following in the output:
